I have asthma and in the winter when I go running the cold air makes it really painful. Should I be on a different medication for this issue?

Probably not: Cold air is a tenacious trigger for asthma - there really is no way to treat it with medications. The only way to get some relief is to cover your mouth and nose with a scarf of cold weather mask. These trap the moisture from your breath, which then warms and humidifies the cold, dry air that you next inhale. Trying to inhale through the nose does the same thing, but is difficult during exertion. ...Read more

I was just chasing my cat outside an never hit my nose it just started bleeding is that normalif running in the cold. Oh an im 23 years old?

Mostly normal: I hope you caught your cat! During the winter when we run the heat, the air can get dry and so can the mucous membranes of the nose. Cold air is even more drying and, in combination with your increased respiratory rate and nasal blood flow, it could precipitate a nosebleed. Try putting a little vaseline on your pinky and apply it to the inside of your nose every day. That should help. ...Read more
