Harvard Medical School assistant professor and asthma sufferer, Dr. Michael Segal, suggests using steam showers to clear allergens and mucus out of the lungs.
The Segal Guide to Asthma notes that people with asthma can create steam showers at home by using a steam generator in conjunction with a bath enclosure.
According to Dr. Segal, an enclosed bath or shower stall is the best way to retain the steam.

Dr. Segal did his undergraduate work at Harvard and his MD and PhD at Columbia, where his thesis project outlined rules for the types of chemical synapses that will form in a nervous system.
After his residency in pediatric neurology at Columbia, he moved to Harvard Medical School, where he joined the faculty and developed the microisland system for studying small numbers of brain neurons in culture.
Using this system, he developed a simplified model of epilepsy, work that won him national and international young investigator awards, and set the stage for later work on the molecular mechanism of attention deficit disorder.
Dr. Segal has a long history of interest in computers, and patterned the SimulConsult software after the way that experienced clinicians actually think about diagnosis.
He is on the Electronic Communication Committee of the Child Neurology Society is one of the medical advisors of the Periodic Paralysis Association, and has been on the Scientific Program Committee of the American Medical Informatics Association.

For Dr. Michael Segal, an assistant professor of neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School, one of the more serious health concerns is for asthmatics.
If airways become constricted, an episode can be life threatening, he says.
"Perfumes are fine for the large majority of people who do not have asthma, and most ingredients in perfumes are probably fine even for most people with asthma," says Segal
The problem, he
says, is that some ingredients in perfumes trigger asthma attacks, since perfumes can contain so many potentially allergenic ingredients that can add to other ubiquitous irritants, from tobacco smoke to exhaust fumes.
Some hospitals ask staff to refrain from using fragranced products, says Segal
, because of their potential effects on people with asthma or other conditions.
