HI ncg
Thanks for coming to HCM
Your symptoms looke like of allergic rhinitis which can be seasonal due to tree pollen during springs and grass pollen during summers.
about 50% of the patient of allergic rhnitis sufferes asthma.

YOU must go for a simple breath test called spirometr to look for asthma...if reversibility defined as increase in FEV1 by 12% and 200 ml, then you may have asthma.

You can go for allergic testing and if it shows allergy to a single agent then targeted immunotherapy can be done for cure......or else you must avoid the allergens and take antihistaminics like cetrizine and nasal spray combination of antihistamines and steroids like fluticasone for at least 3 months......and if concomitant asthma is detected than you will have to take inhaled bronchodilators

meet your doctor
best wishes
