Either way, I will start having a coughing fit and I need to get a cough drop or something to control it.

Thanks for any information.
Cold dry air causes coughing in many people, including myself. It's a well-known effect. (Though I completely expect someone in this forum to tell you grapeseed extract will fix it.)

Air conditioning, especially the aggressive kind where the store leaves the A/C on all the time despite the outside temperature, removes moisture from the air. It's not surprising you coughed.

I think you are correct. (As well as the earlier poster who mentioned it). I really just don't like the extreme AC that some buildings use. It feels so unnatural.

Walking into a Whole Foods vs Costco is like day and night as far as healthy feeling.

I've never felt good walking into a Whole Foods either.

It happened again while I was in the produce/fruit section of the grocery store. It was already cold in the store but I didn't start coughing until I got to that section. Fortunately that was the last section I went to in the store but the cough never went away until after I got outside in the warm sunshine.

I think it must be the cold air combined with something else I already have. Or an allergy. Because I go to these places all the time.

Maybe you're right about the allergy part. Vegetables do have mold and mold allergy is common. You could even have other allergies or sensitivities. Some people are sensitive to cleaning products or fabric softeners --it could be just about anything.

With some people it is psychological.

I think people some people do this as a cowardly and passive-aggressive way to lash-out at people. I will be walking down an aisle at a store, someone coming my way.....and when they get right next to me, they will let-out the fakest sounding cough....it's almost like spitting on someone.

When I walked into a certain big box home improvement store (several years ago) my sinus' would
start going crazy - almost a burning sensation. It might have been the product they were carrying
or lack of air circulation, but it was intense. Haven't experienced that in years, but I still remember
the feeling.

Maybe they were allergic to you.

I've coughed or sneezed when entering or leaving buildings or rooms. It happens most often to me when I leave air conditioning and walk into hot humid air.

No, this is the same as those Fatcartpeople who "accidently" swerve at me........they do it on purpose then give you some snide "sorry".

Walking down the aisle and when you get abreast of me, you let out a very fake cough, pathetic.
