Hello there. I am happy to help you this evening with your girl. The dust can definitely cause irritation and coughing if to much of it is inhaled. So I would absolutely recommend limiting it as much as possible. All that dust goes into the lungs and causes inflammation. Doing it every once in a while does not cause much of a problem but all the time can cause irritation and breathing issues. So again it is best to limit her exposure to the dust. I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do nothesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happyto help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for mytime. Thank you!
