Yes.: Tree pollen in the spring, grass in the summer, weeds in the fall, mold when it rains, and flu during epidemics, are all seasonal triggers.
Dr. Brian Bezack
Pediatric Pulmonology 18 years experience
Yes: This is very common. Allergies are the primary trigger for this type of asthma. In the spring it's the tree pollen; summer is the grass pollen; fall is the ragweed and outdoor mold spores.

A 47-year-old member asked:

Is there anything I can do about my seasonal asthma?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Christopher Dowd
Internal Medicine 20 years experience
Yes: There are lots of things you can do. I would start with identifying your triggers. Since you said it is seasonal, that could suggest environmental allergies are a trigger. If so, avoidance or reduction of exposure to those things can help. For example if you have central air, use a better "allergy" filter. There are medications that could help too. This space is limited-talk with your doctor.

Absolutely: Most asthmatics have allergies and sometimes it is a seasonal thing. Pollen, grass, ragweed, flowers, etc can be "triggers" to an attack. Make sure what "trigger" you have and work with your physician to minimize exposure (air-conditioned bedrooms etc) and sometimes a non-sedating antihistamine may be helpful. Don't self medicate, talk it over with your physician. Good luck.
A 42-year-old member asked:

What to do if I have seasonal asthma should I smoke weed again?

??: Don't quite get the connection. However, any "smoking" can affect your asthma. It is not just tobacco that can bring on an attack. I would of course tell you to stay away from the "weed". Good Luck
