This section will help you learn about flare ups. When you live with COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) you may experience exacerbations (flare ups) of your symptoms - this is when your symptoms become particularly severe, either with or without an infection. Learning the signs of an exacerbation starting up, and knowing what to do when you experience them, is important to help you to manage your condition.
