I’m having trouble washing my long hair in the bath tub and when I try to shower the air is so full of heat and humidity that I have trouble breathing. I use O2 at night and some during activity during the day. Does anyone have tips for using O2 in the shower?

Try placing your tubing over shower rod.

Thank you for all the replies. I’ve been feeling very alone lately. First of all I live in Alabama and although I’m full vaccinated with the Mederna vaccine I’m terrified of getting sick with Variant D Covid, because of my COPD. I will definitely try the tips and go to the link. Again thank you for helping me feel no so alone.

I have found out that if I leave the shower door open while showering that the humidity does not build up in the shower - I still have to take fast showers cause I can't breath but I can take a couple minutes longer with the door open
