Why does fresh air help when someone feels sick

In: 0

It do hit different tho

It doesn’t. It probably comes from the belief in the old days that sickness was caused by stale/smelly air.

What’s probably making the person feel better is getting up and moving around.

Because when you’re feeling sick, your sense of smell is really sensitive, and fresher air is going to smell better compared to stale air

Fresh air, usually cool air, has similar effects to placing a cool towel on your neck/forehead if you’ve got a fever. Helps lower your body temp, and keep you from overheating. Air quality has effects on the body (why air pollution is an issue), so ‘fresh’ air quality might be better than ‘non-fresh’ that may have unpleasant, irritating or nauseating particles in the air e.g. smells, allergens.
