Do you see a spike in asthma as your kids go back to school?

Doctors report that there is a September Spike in asthma and allergies as kids go back to school.  This is partly due to the Fall increase in allergies but also, kids are exposed to allergens in the classroom, playing fields, playgrounds and cafeteria that they weren't exposed to all summer. If your child is prone to asthma and allergies, doctors recommend you visit them in August to come up with a proactive plan of action to help. This includes having an emergency plan in place in case things escalate while at school.  

Does your child suffer an increase in asthma when they go back to school?
