Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

It could be gastric reflux too. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food.

If it is not this, then you are allergic to something in humid climate—may be mold or certain spores. This could be worsening the asthma symptoms.

Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please discuss these possibilities with your treating doctor. Hope this helps. Take care!
