Finally linking my sinus infections to a dry house

For my entire adult life, I have been perpetually plagued with bad sinuses. Well, maybe bad isn’t the right word, but whatever word describes a body part being prone to infection would be the best choice of words right now. For years, I’ve had to almost always carry a bottle of nasal spray on me at all times, which I would use if it were cold out, or if the weather felt especially dry. Either of these two things meant that I was about to get another sinus infection! Finally, after several years of living in a house with overpowered air conditioning systems running all the time, I realized what’s actually causing the issue! It’s not just the weather, but the excessive use of the A/C system that’s causing my sinuses to suffer. To combat this issue, I purchased a humidifier that is portable, and can fit on the floor of my bedroom to provide warm, moist air to breathe in while I sleep. To further ensure that the house is protected from airborne bacteria and other illnesses, I also had an air purification system installed to trap pollen and bacteria. Using both of these systems together has helped immensely to improve the indoor air quality of my home, and it’s always a talking point with any of my guests when they visit. While I don’t mind bragging about my excellent indoor air quality, I’m just thankful that the air no longer gives me sinus infections or intense pressure!
