Using a humidifier with MAC

@rmason I may be wrong. But my understanding is that MAC likes humid/damp environment. And water is not the only place where MAC exists. So even if you boil the water, the vapor will still add humidity to your living environment causing MAC to grow there.

Agreed! Both my husband’s pulmonologist and my ID doctor say nix on humidifiers.

@mason…hi there…I use a bowl of boiled water in bedroom…change it when needed…no humidifiers
