    I just bought a bedroom humidifier from Amazon and it will be here tomorrow. Delivery dates are almost always accurate so...I finally did what might help my cough a bit. Should have done it weeks ago. The prednisone I am taking is really giving me mental and physical energy.

    My little bedroom humidifier has helped me a lot--not just the dry mouth problems but the hoarseness and coughing. I do have to remember to fill it each evening and to clean it now and then but it's worth the effort and so far has created no problems.

    Agate, I have a DEhumidifier I keep in the kitchen. I kept having mold growing in there, even after painting it with new paint. Now it's mold free. But I have to do the opposite of you, and have to dump the water it collects every morning.

    I keep hearing bad things about mold.

    I'm glad to know you're keeping the mold away.

    My new bedroom humidifier holds about a gallon and is supposedly very easy to use. The nice thing about Amazon is reading all the questions and answers customers ask about the product so I have easy directions for a weekly cleaning for mold by running a cup distilled white vinegar through a water cycle for 20 minutes.

    Agate, I got the same little humidifier you have. It didn't do anything for me, but I think it is because my bedroom was too large for it.

    Howie, that was a good idea to get rid of the mold.

    That's probably the way it was. If Linda has a bedroom humidifier that holds a gallon, that must be quite a bit bigger than mine. Mine holds 3 and a half cups! It does last 8 hours but the room is about 10x10.

    Linda, has your humidifier arrived yet? Are you still coughing as bad?
