The reason you cough when you breath cold air is because it irritates the lining in your lungs and stimulates a response to "remove" the problem. When you breath cold air it is also dry and that is a problem. Drink something warm when your outside. The best and simplest remedy would be to wear a scarf around your mouth and nose. When you breath in and out, the water vapor moisture that escapes your nose will get trapped in the scarf and when you breath in, the air will catch the moisture and heat and it won't irritate your lungs as bad as the cold dry air would. Hope this helpsHealth Question & Answer
