I'm trying to find out possible triggers and eliminate them. At the same time I'm coming across things mentioned to relieve asthma symptoms. Some are conflicting. For example, some say to eliminate grains from the diet, others say to be sure to include them. Some say that cold air will trigger asthma symptoms while others say that breathing cold air will greatly relieve symptoms. Some suggest using a vaporizer to increase humidity and say that will relieve asthma symptoms, while others say that the air must be dry and to use dehumidifiers. Who is right?

The other thing I'm coming across is that in cases of asthma there is an associated cough. Is this always the case because my
cat doesn't have a cough. There's just a great deal of rattling in the chest upon exertion and if I tap it so he will cough, sometimes he'll clear a bit, other times he'll make a barking sound if I do that and the rattling is still there but only heard if he has been exerting himself and he breathes out. Otherwise there's no sound and one isn't aware of the phlegm and rattling unless he exerts himself by running,etc.
