Asthma symptoms are less severe and you will eventually learn how to live with them. A good asthma attack is when this gets out of hand, your own coughing violently, cant inhale and the last two individuals I saw come with an asthma attack were upon on the floor clutching in their throat and chest.

Another consideration is the humidity level in the home, which can be measured using a hygrometer. A dry atmosphere has health concerns and it is a humidifier that is used to add moisture to the air in the home. A humidifier can be either for the whole house or a small humidifier ideal for a room.
