The common signs and symptoms that a person is suffering from asthma are breathlessness, frequent cough, difficulty in respiration, cold and blocking of the nose, fever, tightness of chest and decrease in the appetite.
Dr. Bobby Bhalotra, Senior consultant, chest diseases, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital said, “They should take precautions that they should not get exposed to sudden cold, because sudden cold decreases your immunity and there is a chance that you will catch a bad throat infection or acute bronchitis due to exposure to cold and the virus.
