Presently 2nd time in a month i am facing, Not severe but 3-4 days cold, throat choke and little nastoral block, cough and generally i took steam for 3-4 days or dcold total pills to treat myself means majorly home remedial not doctor visit. Now i want to know why so frequently i am effected by these viruses and how can i avoid? Is there any immunity issue if any then what should i do? Is there any big issue Observation: sometimes i noticed that in sweating i drink cold water and sometimes whole day i drink less water and in the evening i get throat ache and nastoral block with little cough. Even i noticed when i came out from my office in evening the outside temp is so hot and i feel a sudden change in temp and feel uneasy. One thing is very strange my boss is always with me in same circumstances and he is 60 year old but he never got infected this thing creat fear.

Hello, I went through your query, this condition could be allergic rhinitis. Allergy may be allergic to anything, like humidity, cold temperatures, pollens, dusts, smoke, dander of cat or dog, dust mites etc. There is no complete treatment for this. Antihistamines will help to control symptoms. Immunotherapy helps in severe cases. The effective way to prevent allergic rhinitis is to steer clear of the allergens that cause your symptoms. For instance, stay indoors when pollen counts are high and take showers immediately after being outside. Also, clean your home to remove pet dander, mold, and dust, avoid cold foods. And regular physical activity like jogging daily,, gym workout, and healthy diet like fresh fruits and vegetables, and avoiding oily junk foods increases your immunity helps you to get through the common frequent viral infections.
