Best compression settings to reduce breathing sound

I like the overall result when applying the audio compressor. But all the presets make my breathing too loud. 
I played with the parameters but didn't get a good result. How do I set the compressor so that my breathing isn't too loud?

The best thing you can do is make adjustments so you don't capture your breath sounds. Move the mic further from your mouth,etc.

With a selective noise filter, you can select a portion of your breathing sounds.And the program will do its best to remove just your breath sounds.With adjustments to try and achieve the best results.

I'm sure the Free program Audacity has such a filter.

I use Adobe addition myself.

With Camtasia? You play with settings till you get the best result possible.There is no common setting as everyone's audio recordings differ. Its  likely you will be unsuccessful. If you are, remember that setting, you'll need it down the road.
