Your friend invites you to his house. You are allergic to his cat.

Tell your teacher or coach that it's better for your asthma if you exercise indoors.

Your bedroom is dusty. You and your parents are going to clean it because dust flares up your asthma.

Invite your friend to your house. Or, play outside.

You are going to have physical education (P.E.) or gym class outside on a hot, smoggy day. Your asthma might flare up.
