You never know what kind of bacteria is present in public areas. While you are out with your friends and family, try not to touch your face to prevent any bacteria from entering your body. Once you reach your house, it is recommended to immediately wash your hands well to get any bacteria that you may have picked up. Change your clothes before laying down on your bed as well.

To protect yourself while you are out, it is important that you take steps to boost your immune system.

Meron pang iba’t ibang paraan upang palakasin ang iyong immune system. Una, siguraduhin na sapat ang oras ng iyong pagtulog. Ang kakulangan ng oras sa pagtulog ay maaring maging dahilan ng pagpahina ng iyong immune system. Kung mayroong may sakit sa inyong bahay, pwede rin kayong uminom ng gamot katulad ng vitamin C upang mas palakasin ang resistensya ng iyong katawan.

But, if your immune system is weak, it is best to keep a distance from anyone who is sick.

If you have someone who is sick in your house, stay away from them, especially when they are coughing and sneezing. Ask them to sneeze and cough into a handkerchief or a tissue so that germs will not spread through the air. Make sure that they do not leave these used tissues anywhere around the house as it can further spread the bacteria.

Try to keep the sick person in another room until they get better. Give them their own bed sheets and their own food so that they do not have to share with others. Once they already get better, clean everything that they touched while they were sick in order to prevent sickness from spreading around the household.

Take note of these tips in order to protect yourself from catching the flu.

While buying treatment and flu medicine is an effective option to combat this illness, maintaining the cleanliness of your surroundings and keeping your distance from those who are sick can do wonders. Palakasin ang iyong immune system upang mas maprotektahan ang iyong katawan laban sa mga sakit. Palagi ring hugasan ang iyong mga kamay at linisin ang iyong kapaligiran upang matanggal ang mga bacteria na gumagala.
