Colds - a group of acute infectious disease caused by several species of viruses and manifest themselves primarily symptoms of upper respiratory tract.
The most frequent symptoms of a cold are runny nose, cough, sore and burning in the throat, fever and general malaise.Cold symptoms do not differ significantly and the weight of the rapid development of complications, but their appearance significantly reduces the quality of life for a long time excluding people from public and social environment, so this important protection against colds.
infection Infectious diseases, collectively known as "cold", a highly contagious and spread to the densely popu
primarily by the spread is airborne (with a cold, cough, with tiny particles of saliva).After contact with a sick person, actively spreading around him viral particles within 2-3 days usually develops active cold with all its attendant symptoms.Duration of illness is 7-10 days.
However, immunity against a viral disease is unstable fairly.This is due to the fact that respiratory diseases caused by different viruses, so the chances of getting a cold immediately after the recovery is very high.
protection against colds involves the use of complex techniques, is able to prevent infection by a viral infection and lead an active lifestyle even in the season of colds.Methods of protection against colds are usually divided into two large groups.
1. Immunostimulatory methods.The use of these methods is based on the strengthening of the immunity of the mechanisms through the use of medication or natural products or methods.
2. Barrier methods, the effect of which is associated with a mechanical barrier penetration of viruses into the human body.
3. A combination of both methods.
The main areas of protection from the cold is to maintain a healthy lifestyle (healthy diet with plenty of foods rich in natural vitamins, frequent walks in the fresh air, exercise and enough sleep), as well as the use of drugs - a variety of immunomodulatory drugs (biogenic stimulators,preparations containing enzymes of bacterial pathogens, interferons).
These funds increase the natural defenses of the human immune system and help the body deal effectively with aggressive viral particles that cause cold symptoms.Protection from cold using immunostimulatory methods are not always useful in connection with the rhythm of the pace of modern life, excluding the long search for useful products, long walks and healthy sleep, as well as the ambiguous reaction of the human body to many drugs.
These methods involve the use of medication (various ointments and gels, creating a film effect on the surface of the mucous membrane of the nasal cavity and retaining virions on the surface) or mechanical means (gauze or paper sterile dressings covering the upper respiratory tract of penetration of the virusparticles).
protection from cold by using barrier methods are not always useful in everyday life and social life, as well as dangerous - many of barrier methods of protection can itself be a source of infection, accumulating on its surface a large number of viral particles (with a late change of bandages or ointment layer).
The most effective way is to combine the two methods, which is expressed in the use of drugs with a dual mechanism of action.One such drug is VIFERON® gel formulation, a preparation of recombinant interferons group.
When applying the gel forms a durable film that prevents a virus attack from the outside.The gel was stored for prolonged nasal mucosa and does not require repeated application during the day.Preparation Viferon interferon gel composition effectively supports the body's immune system and inhibits its own production of interferon.Its use is possible from the first days of life.
