House hold work , particularly,cleaning might increase the risk of asthma.Using air freshners and furniture cleaners once in a week increase the chances of asthma. Frequent use of house hold sprays may be an important risk factor for adult asthama. In one of the study of medical research in spain found that avarage risk of asthama was found to be 40% higher in people regularly exposed to cleaning sprays than in others. Hope people will take enough care while using these sprays or dusting their houses or cleaning the furniture.

Yes this is true. Perfumes and chemicals fumes are a big problem for me. Sometimes they make my asthma act up, and other times they make me dizzy and sick to my stomach. If stuff has been sprayed in a room there really isn't anything I can do for it but leave. I mean I do have an inhaler but it won't help much if I'm still being exposed to all the fumes.
