Hello Annette, welcome to Healingwell :) I don't have asthma (my son does) but I do have allergies. I'm sure you will get more responses as the day goes on. But I do believe that many people with asthma do have allergies. I know my son does. He is allergic to cats, dogs, dust and mold. When his allergies act up so does his asthma but luckily it isn't severe and he doesn't use medication right now. But when he does have to use meds, he uses Albuterol or Asmanex in addition to allergy pills such as Allegra and/or Singulair.
