Why are you not using a preventative inhaler? If you know that seasonal allergies are going to kick your asthma into gear twice a year, you should have a steroidal inhaler ready to go when the season begins. My personal rule is that if I have to use my bronchodilator more than twice a week it is time to start my Pulmicort.
The only way to stay well when you have asthma is to prevent a flare up from even starting.
