When you have allergies or asthma, triggers sometimes seem to lurk everywhere. Candles and flowers emit strong smells and heavy pollen, the cat reclining peacefully on the sofa is a double whammy of animal dander and dust mites, and the crackling fire could throw off nitric oxide or wood smoke and make you cough. Then there's the air pollution, cigarette smoke, aspirin, mold, cockroaches, and food. How is a person with asthma or allergies supposed to cope?
