which vaporizers work the best?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Carol Jacobs
Specializes in Pediatrics
Choices: The use of humidifiers/vaporizers is very helpful for both adults and children and not just for colds! Air conditioning/heating takes the moisture out of the air in our home. Sleeping with vaporizer can help reduce dry mouth, nasal congestion and can help your facial skin rejuvenate as it's most active at night. Don't let water just sit around in it to avoid mildew growth. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/humidifiers.htm
