For people suffering from asthma, Spring is a difficult time. Pollen counts are high during this time of the year, and this phenomenon generally triggers allergies and asthma attacks. Today on World Asthma Day, we discuss the effects of pollen on people with asthma.
Organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) in collaboration with health care groups, World Asthma Day is held every year on the first Tuesday of the month in May, it is an annual event that is meant to raise awareness about asthma around the world.
Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes breathing difficulties. When people with seasonal asthma come into contact with allergic particles or substances such as pollens, dust, or pet dander, their airways become narrower. This makes breathing difficult. Some of the common symptoms of asthma include:
• Wheezing – a whistling sound that occurs when a person breathes
• Coughing – worsens at night or early in the morning
• Shortness of breath
• Feeling of tightness in the chest
