How Pollen Can Be Harmful: Understanding Allergic Bronchial asthma

Parents of a U.K. teen who died from allergic asthma are sharing his story in hopes to prevent more deaths from the condition. But can a pollen allergy really lead to death?

It’s very common for pollen to trigger allergic reactions and asthma episodes.

It’s the asthma that can often be life-threatening, according to Kenneth Mendez, president and CEO of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).

About 10 people per day die from asthma in the United States, Mendez told Healthline.

“If a person has allergic asthma, then an allergen such as pollen can trigger an asthma attack,” Mendez said.

Joe Dale, a 16-year-old boy, reportedly died from a severe allergic asthma attack in 2017 after visiting a park the day he collapsed. According to The Independent, he never regained consciousness and passed away a few days later.

The teen started having symptoms of asthma at 5 years old, but only had one attack when he was 12. He took an inhaler each morning and evening, and kept an emergency inhaler on him. The day he collapsed, he used his inhaler. He later went into a coma.
