I had a head freezing yearly as a child, especially when I was in college while the two of us were in flu season & surrounded by sick children who don’t cover their faces or noses when they cough or sneeze.
My mother would send myself and others to college with hand sanitizer, however I’m not sure how often I really used it.
I hated getting sick too, even if it meant I could miss college from time to time. And since I had asthma, getting sick would take myself and others off our feet faster & longer than it would for most teenagers our age. The worst thing was having our friends come down the street to play street hockey with myself and others separate from realizing that I was sick inside & couldn’t come out to play. Since the two of us always lived in a cold, northern weather conditions, the Autumn & Winter time seasons are exceptionally dry. Dry is fantastic for preventing mold & microbial growth indoors, however it can lead to harsh physical discomfort. Some people report abnormally dry skin, dry eyup, sinus pain, etc. I’ll even get a headache as a hourary reaction from our initial symptoms. My mom always ran a humidifier for myself and others whenever I was apartment sick to help with the symptoms. But I’ve l earned since then that you should be careful using these devices in weather conditionss where ambient humidity is over 60% outside. Adding more moisture to criticall humid air will lead to obvious complications with mold & mildew. If it’s the Winter time & humidity is below 40%, then using a humidifier is a fine way to have more comfortable indoor air than you would have otherwise.
