Colds, ENT diseases: prevention

Frequent colds and ENT diseases can have non-obvious reasons. Any chronic infection in the body can be the cause of deterioration of health. A family doctor or an ENT doctor can make a thorough diagnosis and reveal the true causes of such conditions, so be sure to consult one of these specialists if you are sick too often. In some cases, adding a contrast shower and morning warm-up to your regimen may be sufficient, and in others, treatment with antibiotics or antiviral drugs may be necessary. For example, frequent activation of the herpes virus can “distract” the immune system on itself, instead of fighting a new virus that has entered the body. In this case, such drugs as Acivir or Lovir are necessary. These drugs work by inhibiting the DNA polymerase of the virus, which in turn prevents it from spreading.
