Summer Struggles

Does hay fever trigger your asthma? Does the changeable summer weather find you having to nebulise more often? Does having shielded for 18 months mean your more vulnerable to everyday viruses and infections?

These are just some of the struggles we are hearing from you everyday.


Allergies are always tricky to manage

But spring/summer tree, grass and weed pollen cause hay fever, which can affect your lungs. Knowing your pollen triggers and their seasons can help reduce the risk of your hay fever triggering an asthma attack. Asthma UK have a very useful Pollen Calendar and lots of other helpful tips for helping to reduce your symptoms and make life a little more bearable.

For anyone who already needs to nebulise it can lead to an exacerbation of your chronic condition and therefore an increase in the amount of times you need your therapy.

And it’s not just the pollen count you have to be wary of

Hot weather can cause your symptoms to flare up, especially if you let yourself become dehydrated, so be sure to drink plenty as temperatures sore.

Strong sunshine also causes the level of ozone and other air pollutants in the air to rise, this can trigger your symptoms and cause breathing problems. Hot, humid, changeable weather can also make your breathing problems worse. The British Lung Foundation is an excellent resource whichever lung condition you are struggling to live with.


During lockdown a lot of our customers reported an improvement with their lung condition. People with C.O.P.D. Bronchiectasis, Asthma and others diagnosis all reported and improvement to their breathing during shielding. Whether that was a result of not being near busy roads, not having to commute to work, or simply not being exposed to coughs and colds. Many of you stated that your lungs were certainly felt a lot healthier. However since lockdown easing began and you started to tentatively get back to normal symptoms are creeping back in.
