Stay Safe from Colds and Flu Viruses
Colds and flu are two of the most common forms of illnesses we encounter in our Primary Care in High Point, North Carolina. These have very common symptoms, such as a runny nose, sore throat, lots of coughing, and in worse cases, pave the way to pneumonia and other health complications.
There is no known cure to colds and flu, even people who have received vaccinations from a Primary Care Clinic or a hospital are still susceptible to these pesky viruses. But there are ways you can reduce the risk of you and your loved ones from catching them.
Family Primary Care is here to give you a few nifty tips on how to avoid catching a cold or flu aside from getting vaccinated. Check these out:
- Stay at least three feet away from anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
- Clean communal surfaces at least once a day.
- Keep your hands away from your face, your mouth, and your nose.
- Always wash your hands with soap and clean water.
- Get enough sleep.
Not everyone’s immune system works the same way. Some are weaker than others, which is often the case with people who suffer from chronic conditions, asthma, as well as pregnant women.
No need to worry though, Primary Care Services in North Carolina is here, and we are always ready to help out!
