Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
Diseases in the nose, throat and throat are called upper respiratory tract diseases. The most common are pharyngitis, sinusitis, tonsil infection, flu and cold. People with immune problems, allergies and children, are among the high risk group.
Having very frequent upper respiratory tract infections may indicate different diseases, and patients with this characteristic may require chronic disease and allergy screening. Apart from allergies, vitamin deficiencies can also cause upper respiratory tract infections.
Due to the vitamin D deficiency that humans are not able to produce in winter, some malfunctions can occur in our immune system. Studies show that people with vitamin D deficiency experience upper and lower respiratory tract infections more frequently.
These diseases, which may heal within 3-5 days by resting, drinking plenty of fluids and eating healthy, may sometimes require antibiotic treatment as well.
In such cases, monitor your temperature and avoid unnecessary medication. If your complaints increase or do not go away, definitely consult a doctor.
