First, clean or replace the filter. Next, mix a very weak solution (40:1 ratio) of bleach and water to fill the unit. the bleach will kill any bacteria that could be causing the odor, but NOT harm anyone, The filter will take care of any hard water issues. Just don't make the mistake of thinking "If a weak solution is good, a strong one is better". NOT TRUE. Stay with the 40:1 mix unless you like breathing bleach. (Yuk) Note: It may take a couple of days for the odor to go away.

Ive been down this road before,sorry your son is sick.
Take a teaspoon of salt and add it to a full tank,it will break up the corrosion on the heating elements,a teasspoon of baking soda will help also.
This will not hurt anyone if it blows into the air with the steam.
