Has my child got asthma?

18) Pollen


Some children with asthma find their symptoms are worse in certain seasons.

Grass pollens, tree pollens and crops can all affect people triggering sneezing, and watery eyes in hayfever sufferers and further wheezing in children with asthma.


If your child has symptoms of allergy you should speak to your nurse, doctor or pharmacist to discuss the best antihistamine medicine for your child’s age and symptoms.

You can get daily information from the Met Office – air quality and Met Office – pollen count.
