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.

if done for now, please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today

we only get credit for helping clients after positive feedback

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
