Our bodies tend to get weird sometimes. For instance, why do some of us get allergies? How can such a small little particle cause so much discomfort?

Allergies occur from your body drastically overreacting to a foreign particle. Even though allergens don’t cause your body any harm, it produces the same defenses it does to fight off harmful bacteria and viruses. This means inflammation, congestion, rashes, and more. You “acquire” allergies, meaning you get them after your birth. Some people only get them later in life.

If you have problems with sinusitis or congestion, one of the causes could include dry air. Humidifiers improve your sinuses by adding moisture into the air.

Nose Bleeds:

If your nose doesn’t stay properly lubricated, it will dry and crack, causing nose bleeds. Many people have reported benefits after humidifying the air around them.
