I'm relatively new to lung related issues and not very clued up. I'm from the Lupus uk forum as I have some kind of MCTD/sjogrens auto immune disorder going on. Lately though I have been found to have something called air trapping and small airway inflammation. It was found on a HRCT although my LFT's are fine.
I was wondering if anyone knows how steam inhalation affects this?
I recently visited a sauna and steam room as I know the steam and the moisture is wonderful for my ENT and dryness issues.
On entering though, it almost took my breath away. I sat it out for a while then when I left, I noticed a sign saying "take caution and/or speak to your doctor if you have any respiratory issues". Does this mean it is bad for lung and breathing conditions such as this?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
