There is no cure for the common cold. True, but there are things that parents and caregivers can do to make children (and themselves) feel better. Using a humidifier is one of them. One of the first things doctors recommend when a child comes down with a cold is to use a humidifier, as this can help loosen congestion and soothe a sore throat. Proper humidification is especially important for children since their smaller nostrils get bunged up more easily. More generally, the regular use of a humidifier can help keep family healthy.
