Sometimes, a damp enviroment can cause mold. If there is mold in the house, then yes, the asthma could get a little worse. My little sister has asthma, and we don't have to keep the house extremely dry for her. But a dehumidifier wouldn't hurt to have around.

thank you for your reply. i have a dehumidifier, which is full of water every day. i also have an air purifier in my bedroom so im trying everything that i can think of.
my husband has a cough thats persistant too and he dosnt have asthma but i think if we dont get out of this house soon, he could develope it.
again thank you for your reply and i hope that you have a lovely christmas...
