I've been diagnosed with asthma for about six years but mostly it was so mild I needed minimum medication and rarely thought about it. However in the last few months it has gotten much worse.
I've had two courses of prednisone and seem improved as long as I'm indoors, but whenever I go outside the severe cold seems to trigger an attack. I try to cover my mouth and nose with a scarf but even a whiff of cold air and suddenly I'm gasping. Going for a walk is out of the question. I feel trapped and my little dog doesn't understand why we can't go out.
Is there something I can, or should, be doing to make me more able to tolerate cold air?
