In brief: Cough + Humidity

Could be nothing, as the other doctor noted, but it could also be the first sign of asthma.
Cough with humidity is a classic symptom we see. If it persists i would see an asthma specialist for very simple testing to determine if it is asthma since 5k die and 500k are hospitalized yearly due to asthma.

In brief: Likely no

Likely nothing wrong.
Patients who cough in this situation might have a mold allergy. Molds are common in warm, moist environments.
