I am new here and new to allergic asthma. I have had allergies all my life, but asthma for only a year or so. I am trying to find some helpful information about some practical things I can do to manage my symptoms. The doctor gave me the diagnosis, but I am left on my own to figure out how to live with it. I am glad to find this community.
All things that are difficult to avoid! As for the asthma plan, I'd push back on the pulmonologist for one. If need be, print out the one on the site here and ask him to fill it out. No need to reinvent the wheel.
In this article it talks about the possibility of "cold dry air" causing an asthma attack. Does this also apply to cold "moist "air as I live in Nova Scotia, Canada and am surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean
I just bought several great mufflers/scarves so I can walk outside in cold weather without symptoms of cold weather affecting my lungs. I bought the Octr Mistral Skube, which is sold at ski shops. It is a light nylon tube that has elastic and a cord so it can tightened around the nose. It doesn't fall down like an ordinary scarf.
Interesting note about how very cold air even affects other animals' lungs. In this case horses! 🐴 Mid-Rivers Equine Centre - Combat Lung Damage In Cold Weather Edited to add screenshot of link for those who aren't on FB - CRR - 12/16/2019
This is a great blog post! Be sure to keep hydrated, especially with the heat running more during cold days and nights! Keep your head propped up during the night, to help keep your airway open. Be sure to contact your doctor right away if things just don't seem right. Cover your face with a scarf if going out into the cold. Yes, this means over your mask. Be sure to wash your hands properly when necessary. Follow your medication schedule as directed by your doctor! Also, don't forget to...

No joke my asthma has gotten worse this winter . I think it’s the extreme between the heat and extreme cold . Between the allergies and asthma and drip . I got a respiratory infection. Was on antibiotics not fun . Now anything sets it off . Someone smokes I can’t stop coughing. I was never like this before . Also doesn’t help that my workplace is an active construction zone so it’s non stop with dust . Also sometimes the air flow isn’t working . Just stagnant hot air . Doctor is having me...
Sorry to hear about the increased symptoms this winter and the respiratory infection. It can take some time after a flare (like from a respiratory infection) for your lungs to settle down. Do you have a sick plan from your doctor to tell you how and when to taper off any increased medicines/nebulizers after being sick. Is the new medicine Tezspire ?
