Hi Lynda and welcome to AUK.

Yeah, changes in temperature/humidity can exacerbate asthma.

Keryn’s asthma doesn’t sound very well controlled at the moment. I would suggest that you take your daughter back to your GP to get her asthma/medication reviewed as soon as possible. A wee change in medication may make a big improvement in symptoms.

I hope this helps a wee bit.

Take hair,



hi Lynda, my son has asthma and many things set him off, but one of them is temperature. Over the last few weeks while the weather has been warmer he has had trouble more so during the night. He finds keeping his bedroom cooler helps for him,I try to keep windows open, not easy if you have allergies, or a fan on.
