Are saunas safe with asthma?

I've heard they're not, is this true? (I'm talking about "wet" saunas).

I'm no doctor and you really should consult one before you leap into one, but I was told for my case to avoid it. I have been in one twice and once I felt fine, another I felt suffocated. The extra added moisture caused my airways to basically seize and caused a brutal asthma attack. Depending upon your asthma both dry and wet heat can cause problems, however, I haven't any issue with really hot showers. I would simply consult a doctor first.

Thanks for the reply. A few points; It's for my GF she won't go near one as is, but I've heard they're used as a treatment for asthma. She says the trouble is the chlorine that is in the sauna from the swimming pool.

Diff'rent strokes for diff'rent folks, or diff'rent stimuli for diff'rent bronchial airways. Consult a doctor or you're playing with fire.
