Hi Arunima Arora ! Do you mean to say blood pressure and pulse and other vitals? Yes air purifier shall help in keeping the air clean to a great extent.

Never tried those, shall request fellow parents to suggest. Also your doctor would be able to guide you better on this ,as they know whether such gadgets results are authentic or fake.

Hi Arunima Arora Yes there are some applications and gadgets which are there in the market which are some sort of helpful but before going into any use of them, it is foremost to know that what exactly your child is allergic to. For that I would suggest you to consult to your child's doctor and ask him that what is the main thing which is causing your child allergy, if currently unknown then how you can come accross with the real reason of allergy, how to prevent it, what is the over the counter remedy and what is the treatment. And as far as air purifier is concerned, I think in the current scenario the pollution levels are already very low due to pandemic situation causing lockdown almost everywhere so there is no need of it as if now, you may buy after some time when the lockdown is completely over as the pollution levels may get high again.
