September has a high rate of asthma attacks for both children and adults, and Dr. Jones shared why this is the case on ABC4.
A central reason for the spike in asthma attacks is that September is a peak time for rhinovirus infections, aka the common cold. Colds are passed around as adults and children begin to intermingle with their peers more often and in higher numbers.
Those with allergies and asthma are at a risk when rhinovirus season hits.
In this video, Dr. Jones explains the signs that may indicate you or your child is suffering from Utah allergies or asthma. Chronic coughing, nighttime coughing and more can all indicate a need to see an allergy or asthma specialist.
Here at Rocky Mountain Allergy, which has locations in Layton and Murray, and serves the greater Salt Lake City area, Dr. Jones can provide a number of tests to see if you are at risk.
