In brief: Asthma

See your asthma specialist.
Maybe it is simply the cold air that is triggering the asthma, but 70% of asthma is triggered by allergies....Maybe the allergies are triggering the winter-time asthma. Every patient needs to be treated individually, so it is not safe to provide treatment simply through the internet.

In brief: Allergy evaluation

Wintertime asthma is often due to frequent exposure to cold air, or to indoor allergens such as dust mites, animal danders, molds, or cockroach allergens.
The "usual plan" is the same for all asthmatics: identify the allergic triggers, avoid them as much as possible, and use medications to treat the inflammation that cannot be reduced through avoidance.
