Hi I have a cold(one of my main triggers) and was really hoping to avoid a flare up of my asthma.
I had a bad winter with two very long chest infections, countless steriods and antibiotics and the weather has been against all of us with chest complaints this summer.
I didn't used to react to normal colds i.e. those that started with a sore throa, mainly nasal, not with a cough but feel I may be more likely to after my illnesses in winter.
What do others do to avoid(if possible) a flare, one that requires pred for instance which I hate taking? Or is it just luck. I have upped my preventer, Symbicort 400/12, is there anything else I can do.
Thanks for the advice.
