There are several types of humidifiers you'll find on the market, including cool mist humidifiers and steam vaporizers. Both add moisture to the air, which helps relieve cold and cough congestion. Congestion is one of the most common allergic symptoms. Both humidifiers and vaporizers add moisture to the air.
Breathing in moist air can reduce nasal congestion and relieve sinus irritation. When children have a bad cold, parents often put humidifiers or vaporizers in their rooms to try to relieve congestion. But, sadly, this practice can provide comfort, but in reality it is not effective. Using a humidifier at home can help relieve nasal congestion and can help break down mucus so you can cough it out.
Humidified air can ease the discomfort of colds and the flu. Dry air makes mucus more difficult to expel or expel. Humidifiers help moisturize the lungs, throat, and nostrils. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) suggests that, by helping to loosen mucus, a cold-mist humidifier can relieve a cough.
Even more compact, the Vicks Soothing Vapors plug-in waterless vaporizer can also be used with Vicks VapoPads.
