When you have asthma, any infection - a cold, virus, flu - can affect the lungs, causing inflammation and bronchoconstriction (or airway narrowing). It is important to take measures to stay healthy and be aware of any lung symptoms, even mild, so that you avoid an asthma attack.
Call your doctor if you experience any of the warning signs of an infection (listed below). Also, call your doctor if you have any other symptoms that cause concern.
If you are showing signs of an infection, call your doctor immediately for advice.
