This HEPA Air Purifier Helps Relieve Asthma and Indoor Allergies—and Parents Call It A 'Lifesaver'

If you have a child who suffers from allergies, it can be exhausting to keep up with wiping drippy noses and trying to soothe congestion. And thanks to dust mites, mold, pet dander, and other contaminants, the air in your home can be two to five times more polluted than the air outside, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. But don't fret, an air purifier with a HEPA filter can help. And right now, you can shop the Amazon Prime Day early sale to find great deals on air purifiers, including the top-rated Toppin HEPA purifier for $39.99. 

Allergies are a very common cause of children's health issues, explains Jahangir Sharifi, M.D., practicing founder of L.A. Sinus & Allergy Specialists. Indoor allergens can also "trigger and exacerbate symptoms in kids with underlying asthma," he says, a condition that affects over 5 million children under the age of 18. You can reduce the amount of allergens in your home by vacuuming more and getting rid of pests, but the most effective way to fight these common substances is to use a "high-efficiency and high-flow air purifier to filter out the smallest particles in the air," according to Dr. Sharifi.

Especially designed to be used in bedrooms, the Toppin 4-in-1 HEPA air purifier features a 360-degree purification system and a four-layer filtration system that's able to clear out 95% of airborne contaminants, including allergens, pet hair, cooking smoke, and odors. This is great news for parents because, Dr. Sharifi explains, "a HEPA air filter that is large enough to circulate the air in the room it's in can potentially decrease a child's indoor allergy triggers and asthma attacks."

The Toppin HEPA air purifier is designed to work quickly in spaces up to 160 square feet—larger than the average child's bedroom size. It has three different fan speeds to choose from and it boasts a quiet sleep mode—because we know a sleeping baby should not be disturbed! A few drops of essential oil can also be added to the sponge under the air outlet to diffuse a soothing aroma throughout your child's room. 

Over 3,000 Amazon shoppers have given this air purifier a five-star rating. "This little powerhouse is surprisingly whisper-quiet and the filters are so cheap to replace," one reviewer noted, also commenting on how quickly it assembles and how well it works to soothe indoor allergies. "It exceeded my expectations," wrote a reviewer who has allergies and used to wake up "every morning with a stuffy nose." They added that the Toppin is "pretty quiet and perfect for the bedroom."

The Toppin HEPA air purifier also comes highly recommended by parents. "I bought this for my toddlers' allergies and asthma [and it] has worked wonders," a happy mom reported. And another parent whose son also suffers from asthma and allergies agrees: "We have two [Toppin purifiers] and will probably get a couple more" because they are "lifesavers," they shared. A parent whose daughter is allergic to pet dander gave it "two thumbs up," noting how much they love the way their house smells and feels when they use their favorite essential oil in the aromatherapy feature. 

Don't spend another tireless night dealing with symptoms of asthma and indoor allergies. The Toppin 4-in-1 HEPA air purifier is on double sale right now, with a $10 on-site coupon applied at checkout in addition to the Prime Day early deal price, so you pay just $39.99.
