So, I've been thinking about getting a humidifier for the winter. My hands get awfully dry and then they crack and they bleed and they hurt. Overall, not fun! It really makes mattes worse that my rats tend to claw me up and that I'm also allergic to my boys lol. Any lotion I use tends to sting with these wounds and more often than not, my hands then have an allergic reaction to the lotion. Moral of the story: my hands suck They're allergic to everything. But, I know that since I have rats, I need to get a certain type of humidifier so it won't hurt them. Recommendations on certain brands at all? Where can I get one that will work out just fine but won't cost an arm and a leg to get? Also, where should I place the air humidifier in relation to the cage? Should I have it turned on all of the time or only a few times during the week? I don't want to cause a URI or a myco flare by using the humidifier.
