Suddenly developed asthma from being in my home

When I leave sometimes it goes away. I have a goose down comforter I purchased 3 months ago. Yesterday I washed it in washer and dryed it in dryer so it was out of site for about 5 hours. I felt great that night until I awoke the next morning.

Can the goose down comforter that I've been using for 3 months suddenly cause asthma?

I've been taking singulair & advair for about a little over a week and I feel the same.

Thanks so much!

If you are allergic to the down, you could be experiencing allergic asthma.

Definitely possible. Try putting the comforter away and washing your sheets, see if you feel better.

Re: Suddenly developed asthma from being in my home

Some people have problems with their pillows as well. I've purchased covers for my mattress and pillows. They help with dust, dust mites and other allergens. Another thing to check could be the pollen forcast. I'm traveling for work right now and pollen counts where I'm at are off the charts.

Re: Suddenly developed asthma from being in my home

Hi, I don't know what those meds are as I'm from NZ but it's been studied that asthma is caused by Paracetamol ( I started to develop it when I was prescribed this for my Fibromaylgia problem ) Also artificial colours/ flavours in your food. Hope this may help.
