Viral Infections

Viral upper respiratory infections are one of the most common triggers of asthma. These infections cause inflammation of the nose and upper airways. This inflammation may trigger coughing and wheezing, and may actually progress to an asthma attack. While catching a cold or developing an upper respiratory infection isn’t always avoidable, use of daily maintenance asthma medications may prevent development of asthma attacks during the cold and flu season.
