How to treat a fever
Keeping yourself cool and taking paracetamol or ibuprofen is usually what’s needed to help reduce a fever, according to the NHS.
Cold weather could also put people at increased risk of asthma symptoms.
Asthma is a common lung condition that causes occasional breathing difficulties.
The long-term inflammatory disease also makes people’s airways very sensitive, so much so, cold or damp air can enter the airways and trigger them to go into spasm.
This can then cause asthma symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest.
There are other reasons why winter weather can also affect people with asthma.
