I'm assuming you do have air conditioning where you live and you don't ride in the car with the windows rolled down. Make sure the air conditioning system in the car is recirculating within the car, you probably know that already. But, I am surprised that a few people don't know it. Do you have a clean air machine in your bedroom? The Ionic Pro is the very best I have ever had. I do not sell it. You can easily find it on-line. It has the cylinder that you pull out and wash. I used to have four or five of the smaller machines with the hepa filters all over the house. Those filters ran about $18.95 each and needed to be changed each month and did not do the job that the Ionic Pro does. I would never again buy a clean air machine that had a disposable filter. I'm just trying to think of things to help get you through this year. Of course, you need to wash your bedding often. Do you have a nebulizer and medication for it if you need it? I live in KY and those of us with asthma have to deal with what you are describing all the time. If I can answer any other questions, please feel to ask or email me. Always cover your face in the cold weather. I almost forgot about that one.
