Call Pollen set off a flair.

I have problems with my lungs anyway from the disease, but pollen is high and I find myself in a full flare. is it just bad timing, or can pollen set off a flair?

I hadn't ever really thought about it, but I think that it does. My allergies to pollen, etc. caused my discoid lupus to flare. The allergies compromise the immune system even more than usual and when the immune system is compromised the lupus flares up.
