K5 monitor is fogging up

I'm right-eyed. So, when I use the view finder the lower left of my monitor fogs, as I breath through my nose. If I do a number of photos, without letting the fog evaporate, the fogged area grows and makes it difficult to review photos. Any suggestions--beside don't breath?

Carry a handkerchief to wipe off the screen?

I've been running into this as well. High humidity, cool weather and camera, hot shooting action. Yesterday the viewfinder fogged up as well. Sometimes my glasses fog which is a blame nuisance.

A cloth might be the only solution. There are spray solutions available for glasses that are supposed to help with fogging, but I don't know how effective they are.

Breathe through your mouth?

The K5 must be one of the worst quality cameras ever from Pentax.
Look even the LCD fogs up.........

Just a shot in the dark, but maybe you can try one of one of those 'anti-fog' sprays for spectacles?
Else, I think just wipe it with the shirt.
