Our allergist and paediatrician both told us that September 25th is when asthma peaks each year. I always mark it in our electronic calendar each year as a reminder.


“September Asthma epidemic” is coming. Are you prepared?

Quote:
It would make sense that early Fall is hard on Asthma; most Asthma is allergy related and between the leaf mold and ragweed, the peak in Asthma problems makes sense. Doctors also attribute some of the childhood Asthma problems to students being in school where they are exposed to new airborne elements, such as pet dander on other students clothing or airborne viruses. Overall, the mix can trigger allergies and in turn, create Asthma flare-ups.
