Customer Question

I use to smoke in my house but quit in June. My grandson has a slight case of asthma and I have done everything right to clean the smoke smell in my home. Everyone says my house is almost free of smoke smell just very faint. Can this small odor cause an asthma attack

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

That is unlikely given the very faint smell.

Still, your grand son can be very sensitive to smoke smell.

That can result in asthma attack sometimes.

In adults, this is not usually a problem.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
