Seeing my breath when I cough?

Crazy question, but can you see your breath when you cough, even at room temperature?

I swear it's been happening to me since I got a cold three weeks ago. Seems like I see a slight momentary fog in front of my face when I cough.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

This can happen, as the droplets from coughing may be suspended, more so in cold weather, where the droplets tend to condense.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Thank you. It was quite noticeable and I was surprised, because I'd never "seen" my coughs before.

Thanks for the reply!
