Absolutely: It is classic for recurring bouts. You should speak with your pulmonologist or primary care provider to determine if this is flaring; and what treatment options exist if it is a recurrence.

Not necessarily kids: Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (abpa) is a hypersensitivity reaction to a. Fumigatus colonization of the tracheobronchial tree and occurs in conjunction with asthma and cystic fibrosis (cf). 0.25-0.8% of people with asthma and approximately 7% of patients with CF are estimated to have abpa (this includeds kids and adults).
