I want to know if you can be allergic and get short of breath or asthma from humidity or cold. I sleep near my window and the weather is starting to get damp in the mornings and i have worse post nasal drip and shortness of breath when i wake up. it takes a long time to clear. also, when i drive in damp foggy places (like near the ocean) i get severe shortness of breath and have to cover my face. Does anyone else have this? how do you fix it?

Yes, I've heard that cold can aggravate your asthma the same with moist damp air. I don't have any suggestions other then if you are having an increase of symptoms to contact your doctor.

Yes, Asthmatics can be very sensitive to cold and damp conditions and humidity.  I found what works best for me in regards to humidity is de-humidifier hooked up in my bedroom and my basement.  I run it all night when it is esp. humid and it helps
