Exercise induced asthma symptoms. Keep in mind that allergies trigger asthma attacks. Cold air increases asthma attacks. Moist, warm air is better. Swimming is always best for asthma patients. It's also best to train the muscles to increase with exercise with warm-ups building up to the tolerance like trainers. There have been cross-country skiers that have had asthma but it's well controlled or they build up and they get their muscles under control. Muscles are very important in breathing and if a person can get their muscles in good tolerance to exercise they will more than likely have less asthma attacks. Many people have used a mask, not too tightly fitting, but to warm the air as they breathe in and out if it's very cold outside and it warms the air. It keeps the air warm, and it keeps the airways from being dry and cooling because that tends to induce asthma attacks. Also, a proper diagnosis and follow up with a proper and a good medical doctor to control your asthma is the very key to being able to exercise, to being able to tolerate it, and to be able to build those muscles so that you can breathe well and live a normal life.
