Help! How Can I Control the Moisture In My Bathroom?

Good Question

Q: I have issues with moisture in my bathroom after a shower. There is an exhaust fan, but it doesn't work after my landlord turned it off due to the horrible rattling. There is also no window in the bathroom as I live in a building of about 26 flats or so and the bathroom is in the rear of the flat. What can I do to stop the moisture building up? I quite frequently have asthma issues and so mold and its companions are a big problem. HELP!
