Exactly this time last year I had a very bad chest infection followed by three more & pneumonia, then diagnosed with asthma. Have had a terrible year, then found Fostair was great for me only to be allergic to it (hives and fast heart rate). So back on QVAR which doesnt really work for me in the meantime.
Anyway, as well as caring for my 2.5 yr old twins I also run a small business retailing baby & childrens products which means I tend to attend fairs over the weekends, mainly outdoors from say 8am until 7pm maximum.
From 1 December I have approx 6 outdoor events, am not sure how I am going to cope. Having just gone out the back door for a couple of minutes, I feel like I now have ice cubes on my chest/in airways, its really hurting.
Are there any other people who can share any info how to cope with being outdoors for long periods in the cold weather. (apart from wearing warm clothes) - just worried breathing the cold air in is going to make my asthma worse :''( I can't afford to be ill.
