We have three kids under the age of 10 who seem to always be coughing and sneezing and sometimes have a runny nose. We’ve asked their pediatrician about it, but his answers are different during various times throughout the year. Other than taking them in for allergy shots, which two of the three have done to no avail, what’s the difference between an air purifier and a humidifier, which he’s also recommended?
My children also experience allergies, which often lead to asthma. An air purifier, especially medical grade, has made a huge difference in their lives. I also use a cold air humidifier, as recommended by their doctor; more so in the summer. I would suggest that you ask your children’s doctor to explain his recommendations for each child in terms that you can better understand.
