I have the same issue with cold weather (I live in Ohio. Moved here three years ago from Arizona). Even just walking can hurt when it's super cold. I usually take a scarf and make sure to keep it around my mouth whenever I'm outside and I breathe through my mouth so the warmth stays in the scarf.

I also can have the issue with summer humidity. In Arizona I didn't really have too much trouble. There weren't many allergens or anything and with it being a dry heat I could still breathe pretty clearly. If anyone else has the issue I'd do pretty much the same thing but with a much thinner cloth like a bandanna.

Inside exercise helps me a great deal, especially during extreme cold. (Luckily I live in Las Vegas... so there isn't much "extreme" cold here!)

Also, have you tried tying a bandana around your nose and mouth? It can help a little with allergens. I know it can make some people feel like they are smothering, but it got me through lots of corral cleaning in my teens! Regardless of my asthma and pet allergies I grew up riding horses, having dogs, cats, rabbits you name it! Also... showering at night before bed always helped keep the allergens reduced.

Don't give up... you'll figure a way to get around this. Don't let the asthma beat you!!!

Is there any way you can exercise inside? That might be a solution to the cold. We have a treadmill and exercise bike at my house, and I used to have a DDR set, but you can also do exercise videos and stuff.

I haven't been on SP since a while, even less WOWA, but I do read the posts on my mobile and all...

But now I just don't know what to do with my asthma...
Cold for me always been a trigger... and I live in fricking Montreal, right now it's not that cold, -14C . I went jogging a bit this morning .... basically running the new pup. But I just can't seem to do more than .76km without acting up. Usually i can do a bit more (I'm really out of shape, better than I was a year ago, but still)

so I don't know, sometime I just want to give up training all together since I can't seem to get the asthma in control... when I train

on that note, my doctor does know I have two dogs and work as a vet tech/admin. so we're working with it. I take two inhaler (Alvesco and Salbutamol ) I don't need my "rescue" inhaler as much (once or twice a week with big cold and when there's too much cats at work... or when there's a lot of smoke) but in general im okay.
