Keeping child asthma under control in summer

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It's a reminder for parents who have children with asthma. For many kids, summer brings a break from asthma symptoms.

There are fewer viruses going around, and for some, the humid air can make breathing easier.

But health providers warn, don't get complacent.

Allergies, such as to grass and mold, are still around to trigger attacks.

Pollution and very hot and humid days can also spark problems.

Keep watch on the AccuWeather forecast for "ozone action days."

Keep this in mind and make sure, even if you are on vacation, to keep emergency medicine on-hand, as well as an action plan.
