Weather and Asthma
At the first hint of cool weather, I might as well assume I will need my inhaler. It happens every year. However, this year has been a bit different and not in a good way. Because of COVID, my gym (YMCA) decided to hold classes outside in the parking lot since we couldn't go inside to workout. This is a great idea and it works really well, but here in NC, it has been very moist. It could be the humidity, fog, misty rain, dew, etc., and because I am allergic to aspergillus mold and it is cool outside at 6 AM now and I am exercising, this has become an asthma trigger. Some days I am fine and other days I start coughing and have to use my inhaler. I never know from day to day how my lungs are going to react so that precious inhaler goes with me everywhere (and should anyway!).
Have you ever gotten "moon face" as a side effect of prednisone?
