Health Tip: Reducing Asthma Attacks in Cold Weather

(HealthDay News) -- Dry, cold air can trigger asthma attacks, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America says. Breathing in the winter air can cause airways to restrict, making it difficult to breathe.

The foundation offers suggestions to reduce asthma attacks during winter:

  • Cover your mouth with a scarf.
  • Exercise indoors, not outdoors.
  • Always carry your quick-relief inhaler with you.
  • Talk to your doctor about pretreatment plans.
