This is Dr. David

very cold air can cause spasms of your airways and cause you to have asthma and reactive airway from cold dry air.

there are treatments with bronchodilators like albuterol which can help open up your airways in cold weather

a pulmonary function test can check for reactive and contracted airways during cold air exposure.

do you have a doctor you can see

or you can go to the ER and see a doctor there to have your lungs evaluated.

let me know if you have other questions.
