Question grass pollen

I have been trying to find out what is causing my asthma and it seems to be connected to outside and not inside as I only suffer in the summer, it started again about 2 weeks ago
when I googled for pollen count , I found grass pollen mentioned but no flower pollen mentioned, is this because flowers don`t cause asthma

please can anyone help
I love my garden and at the moment it has lots of flowers in bloom

Re: grass pollen

Flower pollen can definitely trigger allergies which, in turn, can cause asthma to flare up if you have allergic asthma.

Flower pollens are not typically tracked in the pollen count because the amount of flower pollen in the air is tiny compared to grass pollen, tree pollen and molds.

Re: grass pollen

This is grass pollen time anyway. If you'd checked earllier in the spring it owuldhave been tree pollens. Various things are more prevalent at certain times.
