How #Scarfies can help prevent asthma attacks this winter
Breathing in cold winter air often causes asthma symptoms, and sometimes asthma attacks. Three-quarters of people with asthma told us this happens to them.
But when you breathe through a scarf, it warms the air up. This helps prevents the cold air irritating your airways and triggering an asthma attack.
