Hi! Hoping for some guidance from people with greater knowledge of asthma than myself.
I had my asthma under great control during the pandemic when I was working from home (using preventer inhaler in the morning and at night-never needing my blue inhaler). In June I had to return to work in a different building then I previously worked. I tried working in 3 different offices, each of which triggered my asthma and forced me to rely on using my blue inhaler again for flare ups.
I had requested an appointment with my asthma nurse and in the meantime was placed in a 4th office. This seemed to be going better ( I was only in it briefly), but in speaking with the nurse she advised that carpet was the most likely trigger. So I asked to be moved to an office with a hard floor, which was granted. It's a really small office (about 6ft x 6ft), and has nothing in it but a desk and a PC. Unfortunately my asthma has been triggered again, worse than the previous office which had a carpet.
Long story short, my question is what could possibly be triggering my asthma in a small office with no carpet? The previous office had a window; is that possibly why it seemed to work better?
Also, would an air purifier make any significant difference?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
