Brief Answer: there are different ways Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome back. Yes you can use any commercially available humidifier in the room. Also other alternative is to keep a basin of water open in the room when fan is on. Even an electric kettle or any steam source can be used in the room for 10-15 mints with closed dooirs before he enters the room for sleep ( be careful that there is no accident with hot air or heat source!!!) If u are using monteleukast with levocetriznine daily ,you can change to plain montleukast same. 4 mgs of any brand.( when he has no running nose or sneezing. Levocet can cause some drying also.
