Signs And Symptoms Smog Is Affecting You

  • Excessive Coughing
    The smog polluted air can cause a very dry and irritated throat which leads to cough. Not only people having asthma, but people who are healthy can be affected by it as well. Inhaling too much polluted air can cause healthy people to end up with serious lung infections and breathing issues.
  • Eyes and Throat Getting Irritated
    Air pollutants in the smog season specifically can lead to eyes, nose, throat, and skin irritation. They can also cause more serious reactions, including various respiratory illnesses, allergies, and other serious health conditions.
  • Breathing Issues
    Inhaling too much smog can leave you feeling out of breath or struggling to breathe.
  • Dizziness and Frequent Nausea
    Carbon monoxide present in the air can interfere with the oxygen supply throughout our body, it can lead to fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea, confusion, and disorientation when inhaled at high levels.
  • Unexpected Asthma Attack
    For people who have pre-existing conditions like asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease breathing polluted air can result in an asthma attack. It is a possibility that they can experience a flare-up, making them produce more mucus, feel more breathless, or cough a lot more than usual.
