Heat a risk for Asthma and Allergy sufferers

Updated: Wednesday, July 2 2014, 08:00 PM EDT

This summer’s heat can be dangerous for everyone, but especially for those battling asthma and allergies.

The rising temperatures make air pollution worse.

Dr. Eduardo Arreaza with Rochester General Hospital say preparation is key.

“Drink a lot of water, have your asthma medications or inhaler available, stay indoors when the weather is hottest in the middle of the day, and be alert for weather advisories like a bad air quality day,” Dr. Arreaza says.
