Title: Protect yourself from thunderstorm asthma
Summary: A poster - Protect yourself from thunderstorm asthma

Title: Thunderstorm asthma
Summary: Thunderstorm asthma is mostly triggered by an uncommon type of thunderstorm that causes grass pollen grains to be swept up into the clouds as a storm forms during grass pollen season. When they absorb moisture, the pollen grains burst open and release large amounts of small allergen particles. These particles are so small that they can be breathed deeply into the lungs. In some people this will cause the lungs to become irritated. Irritation can cause swelling, narrowing and extra mucus production in the small airways in the lung. This makes it difficult to breathe and can result in asthma symptoms such as wheezing, chest tightness and coughing. These asthma symptoms may become severe very quickly. Not all thunderstorms in pollen seasons result in thunderstorm asthma.
