A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Changing the location or where you live can expose you to many more allergens. These allergens are potentially causing the reaction in your lungs and the inflammation. This is what is causing the issue of difficulty in breathing in you. You need to see a Doctor to confirm this is happening. And if needed, you can increase the dose of medication. You can also try to avoid the allergen as this is always better than curing the aftermath. Wishing you the best.

Hope this helps you
