I've had seasonal allergies all my life, and I'm also

Patient

Q: I've had seasonal allergies all my life, and I'm also asthmatic. My asthma is quite minor as i generally dont need to use my ventolin anymore unless its may because of seasonal allergies. However, I also have a cold and it has exacerbated my asthma. My ventolin says to use it 4 times a day 2 puffs at a time, but I find that it only works for a short period of time and then my asthma comes back. Is it safe to continue to use my ventolin during the day over the 4 times if I actually need it to relax the asthma?
