Is There A Time Of Year That Is Worse For My Asthma?

Question: Is there a time of year that is worse for my asthma?

Answer: Many people with asthma find that their asthma is worse certain times of the year. If someone is allergic to certain airborne allergens, the asthma can be worse during warm weather months -- spring, summer, and fall, for example, for pollen and allergy. The cold or flu season is generally in the winter time and children and adults both often find that catching colds or catching the flu will result in asthma exacerbations.
