Sounds like your asthma is uncontrolled.  You need to run through your medication with your doctor, and also make sure that you are taking the treatment correctly.  Some of the asthma inhalers have to be taken twice a day, every day.  They also have to be used in the correct way.  It also sounds like you may have chronic hay fever and they will need to treat that with a nasal spray and antihistamines, otherwise your asthma control may not significantly improve.
