I am back from my very much needed holiday to Mexico! It was just what the Dr ordered, but it want quite asthma free.
I took several inhalers in my hand luggage and suitcase (well you never know), and off we set at 2am. Timing the inhalers was a bit tricky with the 6 hour time difference, but I just added an extra dose in to be sure.
I fell asleep on the plane, and without any coughing, had a full blown asthma attack which was fortunately brought quickly under control by my inhaler. I was terrified, as was my best friend, but I kept calm.
The cabin crew did not even notice, although a few other passengers were concerned.
Once in Mexico, everything was great, but I did need the inhaler several times. I even went snorkeling many times!
I was worried that whilst snorkeling, I might need my inhaler, but could not find a completely waterproof container for it anywhere. Has anyone else had any success with this?
One final note: my purse got stolen, containing my inhaler, so it might be an idea to take several on holiday.
Back home now, and dreaming of icing sugar sands and cocktail blue ocean. . . . .
