Pollution Mask

I've recently developed a sore throat and a cough...

This is  obviously due to the air pollution and dust i breathe in on a daily basis here in HCMC!!

I have bought a cheap mask but i feel it doesn't really filter out much.

Any recommendations for places that sell decent masks?  :)

Hi,

I guess the one you use cost 2000-5000d only. They are just good to not be sunburn. I used it to travel someone and my face was covered with dust. You can go to buy high quality of those masks in shops in shops which sell health tools locate near Tu Du( Cong Quynh street) or Thanh thai- To Hien Thanh street. Over 100 000d/mask

Or you can buy this.

I use disposable surgical mask  :)
I have no problem yet.
Re-usable masks are some sort of burden -  need to wash and use.  :)
If you want to buy surgical mask go to Tran Hung Dao street, Q.1. So many wholesale surgical shops are in that street.
1 box (50 pcs) starting from 30.000 VND

Surgical masks are for protecting patients and others from bacteria shed in liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer's mouth and nose and offer extremely minimal (if any) protection against environmental pollutants (far less than the reusable cloth masks most people here use).

When in heavy traffic areas/Saigon I personally use disposable N95 respirators such as this one (can be easily worn with full face helmet). In areas with much less traffic cloth mask or nothing.

I think you'll find you have a cold, still the mask is a good idea if you are here a long time...
