  • There is concern that Asthmatics may have worse outcomes due to Covid-19

  • There is also concern that the use of corticosteroids may cause more severe symptoms due to Covid-19

  • At this time we recommend that asthmatics continue on current medications and dose.

  • Oral or injected corticosteroids such as prednisone/prednisolone should be held for significant exacerbations if possible.

  • Biologics such as Xolair, Fasenra, Nucala and Dupixent should be continued.

Intranasal corticosteroids such as Flucticasone (Flonase) Mometasone (Nasonex) etc. can be discontinued and substituted with other medication.

The new coronavirus doesn’t cause sneezing. But if you do sneeze, it’s important to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue to keep the virus from spreading. Wash your hands right away.

Red eyes:

Only about 1% to 3% of people with COVID-19 will have pinkeye.  Call your doctor if you have red eyes with other COVID-19 symptoms.
