    A humidifier helps place moisture back into dry air. When you’re sick, this can help with a dry nose, throat, lips, and skin. When you’re sick, you know that relieving a dry throat can be heaven! The website below is from the EPA website about the use and care of home humidifiers. It gives more benefits, as well as cautions for the use of such humidifiers. I hope this helps!

    Humidifiers are beneficial for a number of reasons. Why you often see humidifiers in rooms where people are suffering from respiratory illnesses is because moist air helps to clear the sinuses, thus increasing oxygen intake, and also soothes symptoms of various bronchial maladies. Water droplets are infused with oxygen and when they’re inhaled your lungs are receiving oxygen more efficiently than from drier air. Also, humidification stimulates the processes your body uses to fight respiratory conditions–such as the performance of mucous. In addition to using a humidifier when you’re sick, one can also help you avoid getting sick in the first place. Low indoor humidity (below 30%) can dry out your sinuses and throat, making it easier for viruses and bacteria to infect you through those means.
