    My eyelids have been very, very swollen for the last few days and it felt like I had an earache. I thought I might be getting the flu. I also had some congestion and my eyes were red. I changed the carbon filter in my air purifier and had dramatic improvement. The swelling went down in 5 minutes.

    I meant charcoal, not carbon. The congestion was flowing through my brain.

    I was right the first time. It's the activated carbon filter in my air purifier that I needed to change. It gets rid of most odors. No smoking here. The chemicals in the air were attacking me again.

    Formaldehyde is in almost everything. Sometimes I'm a little sensitive. Other times I'm more so.
