How to treat, not cripple
It’s the 21st century, and people continue to make mistakes when treating colds. So how can you actually help your body?
First you need to dispel the myth about the cold itself. Many people believe that you can only get sick if you are very cold, Vechernyaya Moskva reports. In fact, a cold is a bacterial infection, and you need to know how to treat it correctly.
Firstly, do not forget about seasonal vaccination. For it to work as it should, doctors recommend repeating the procedure every year, since it does not save you from colds, but only reduces the risk of getting sick.
But you should refuse antiviral drugs. This is because there is absolutely no benefit from them against ARVI.
Doctors say do not take antibiotics on your own. These, unlike antiviral drugs, are serious drugs that should be taken only as prescribed by a doctor. Before this, you must take a blood test.
Also, you should not endure the temperature if your health worsens. A high temperature will not have any positive effects on your body. It is necessary, first of all, to rely on your feelings.
“If you feel bad from a fever of 37.2, lower your temperature,” added therapist Alexander Lavrishchev.
Pregnant women also encounter myths about colds. In Russia, the opinion has taken root that mothers should not take cold medicine. But science has moved far forward, and now you can easily choose the right drug.
