It is normal for a person to become ill for about a week, during which time the body's defense systems deal with the infection on their own. In this regard, for the treatment of colds, it is not necessary to take drugs that allegedly increase immunity, which has decreased due to the disease, said Irina Dobretsova, a general practitioner.

He explained that lowering the immune system in healthy people is rare, so immunomodulators and immunostimulants are a waste of money.

Dobretsova also advised against using non-steroidal drugs for local pain. According to her, these drugs have side effects, including causing diseases of the stomach and kidneys, she writes "Evening Moscow".

In the cold season, the specialist recommended taking vitamin D. However, first you need to do a blood test to find out the required dosage, explained Dobretsova.

As previously written by, an allergist-immunologist Vladimir Bolibok stated that the lack of sunlight leads to a reduction in immunity. For this reason, the flu epidemic this season may start earlier than usual.
