Although one may not think asthma and winter go together, asthma patients need to pay attention to their surroundings. Asthma symptoms can still flare up during this cold time of year. Below are five things you should know about asthma symptoms in the winter:

  1. Be careful around dust and mold behind sinks and furniture, especially around heating units. If the dust or mold is exposed these can cause asthma flare-ups.
  2. Be careful to avoid cold air as well as scented holiday decorations. These items can cause asthma flare-ups as well.
  3. If you have trouble breathing, you should always seek medical attention.
  4. Keep track of your asthma triggers. These can help doctors understand what may cause your asthma symptoms.
  5. Though asthma is primarily associated with children, adults in their 40’s and 50’s can also suffer from asthma symptoms.
