    When someone starts using a e cigarettes around me it takes about five minutes before my asthma symptoms kick in. I also start getting a burning sensation in my throat, which other people have told me they experience too. I'm very sensitive but I just don't see how these products can't be harmful.

      Howard. Do you use an asthma inhaler when your asthma kicks in? If so, I'm afraid you are inhaling propylene glycol. Do some research and you will find that PG is the base used in asthma inhalers. Does it make your asthma worse?

      It could however be the nicotine... but You must be invading their personal space. The vapor cloud from my E-Cig evaporates to nothing in the air very quickly. Its like steam from a pot of boiling water and it only extends about 2 feet from my own face. Unless you are in a VERY confined space with multiple people vaping, I would have to guess this is in your mind and not your nasal passages.
