    Why does gf cough as soon as entering bathroom? 3rd Sep 17 at 11:18 AM
    My gf starts coughing (and sometimes sneezing) as soon as she enters our bathroom, she has mild asthma (not needed her inhaler for over a year though), her symptoms are almost like hayfever when she goes in there, and start within a minute of going in there. Our house is very clean, theres no mould or anything, and it doesnt effect me...

    Any suggestions please?

    Do you have any sort of dehumifidier? I had one and it set my hayfever off like anything (i think it was the crystals in it.) Stopped as soon as I got rid of it.)

    As she has mild asthma she is likely to be affected by the myriad of perfumes, cleaners, sprays, toilet cleansers etc., etc. I have severe breathing difficulties and can't tolerate any perfume at all.

    If she is not affected elsewhere in the house then she possibly has a reaction to one of the products. Try removing everything perfumed from the bathroom, then each day use one in situ as per usual (i..e. toilet cleanser or whatever) and see if you can identify which product is causing her problem.
