Arrow Warm Mist Vaporizer Question

So I have sinusitis and I've been using a warm mist vaporizer constantly for the past few days....Is this ok? I know this might sound silly but I don't want to get fluid in my lungs and then get even more sick.

Re: Warm Mist Vaporizer Question

Warm mist humidifiers reduce discomfort from sinus related pressure, headache and infections. Humidity helps the tiny hairs that line the nose and mucous membranes work to sweep contaminants from the respiratory system. Humidity also loosens mucous in the throat and upper respiratory tract so that it is easier to expel.

Be sure and clean the vaporizer per instructions.
