Writing on behalf of my mum whose 75yrs. She was diagnosed with Asthma about a year ago following pnenumonia but hasn't since had any problems with it although sometimes paint and chemical smells can trigger a cough. It's very well controlled at present, takes Seretide twice a day which seems to be doing the trick. However this summer she's been coping very badly with the heat and am thinking of buying a portable air conditioner for her bedroom to help reduce the temperature there. However wondered if the dehumidifying (and hence air drying effect) of an air con might be bad for people with asthma? If anyone has any experience/ advice would be grateful. Thanks,
