Q.

Humidifiers

Hi Doc, What is your opinion on humidifiers? I''ve heard both good and bad, but am not sure whether to use one for my 15 month old or not! Will it really make a difference if she''s all blocked up?
Thanks!

Humidifiers are useful if children have a chest infection or a blocked nose problem. They are especially useful in areas where the normal day to day humidity is low such as in the Karoo and N.Cape.
