Allergic Asthma

I have allergic asthma. I am allergic to 4 types of dust mites, tree pollen, grass, and flower pollen. Symptoms can appear quickly from someone wearing strong body sprays and perfumes, a dust cloud, etc. There are a lot of unknown triggers.

I can no longer tolerate real Christmas trees. I was walking around a sale holding a pine cone wreath back in December, and my entire hand swelled up. I'm 54, and the older I get, the worse I get with allergic asthma triggers.
