I am having a horrible COPD Flare and taking antibiotics, prednisone, and using my inhaler with little relief. I would like to know others opinions what might be better to use for congestion: Humidifier or Vaporizer? Any suggestions for relief will greatly be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
I am so very sorry you are undergoing all this.
If you have low levels of oxygen in your blood, oxygen therapy can help you breathe better.
I hope you get well soon,
Hello pamee I have you in my prayers. I have found relief from running a hot bath or shower the steam works great I suffer from asthma/ flare ups of bronchitis. I think a humidifier does the same thing. hope this was helpful and that you feel better soon.
I agree with the cool mist vaporizer. Does you dr know? Nebulizers can work better then inhalers too. Like Masso said, oxygen at a low amount can help too.
We need you around here. Hope you're better soon.
Although I can't offer any better advice just wanted to let you no I will have you in my prayers always as a friend..you r part of our family and we all love you..sending prayers your way...
