Every 10 seconds someone is having an asthma attack in the UK. Attacks are potentially life threatening and mustn’t be ignored.
Asthma attacks are usually the result of symptoms getting gradually worse over a few days. Needing to use your reliever inhaler more than 3 times a week may suggest that your asthma is not well controlled. If your asthma symptoms are getting worse or you’re using your reliever inhaler more, don’t ignore it as you may be at increased risk of an attack.
