Re: Chloe's Skin in Flaky

I have one that does the warm mist. I really dont like the cool mist ones. My baby girl seems to really like that I have the warm mist in there now. She comes out more often and I get to spend more time with her. I have to get her some blankets since my husband and I are moving and she really wont have the humidifier.

Good points Nancy! Do you have a favorite brand/kind?

Get a hot air. The cool mist ones are breeding grounds for germs and mold.

Those are adorable! Loving the spongebob

I was reading a post from Lilysmommy awhile back about the hot and cool ones and which was better but can't find the post again. Do yall prefer the hot or cool? Seems the hot would be better for germs? My hedgehog room is like 14x20 or so.

I've been wanting to get a humidifier too, there are so many kinds to choose from went here http://humidifierinformation.com/ looking for help and found some interesting stuff but i'm still unsure which one I should get.

Re: Chloe's Skin in Flaky

It will definitely help if the air is dry, which can be caused by space heaters or similar ways of heating rooms. Even if you don't use that kind of heating, most likely it'll help at least a little.

Re: Chloe's Skin in Flaky

My husband and I live in Minnesota,I went out and got some flaxseed oil, I was also wondering if keeping a humidifier in her room would be good also. The room temp is 74 but just wondering if that would help out a bit.

Re: Chloe's Skin in Flaky

Both of my hedgies are really flakey right now. I live in a dry state that has not had any snow this winter, so there is no moisture in the air.

I only give them foot baths now. I also gave an oatmeal bath which seemed to help. I have put a little Flax Seed oil on their backs and also putting Allederm (sp?) on their food.
