I don't just mean the last few very humid days and weeks.
I always negotiate with my docs as to how far I can go with cutting back on meds. One result is that I'm written up for two puffs morning and night of my brown, steroid inhaler, 'take as necessary' for my blue one and two squirts per nostril morning and night of my nasal inhaler. However, for years I've got away with one puff morning and night of the steroid inhaler, one squirt per nostril every two-three nights and, as for the blue inhaler, by the time I need it it's usually run out :oops:
Not so this summer. I'm on my full whack of each and dare not leave the house without my blue one. I've spoken to other asthma sufferers and they are having similar experiences. Even friends who don't regard themselves as having anything at all, seem to have little dry asthmatic coughs or very runny noses.
How about you guys?
