Hand washing is key to stay healthy

(Continued)

It takes good hygiene to prevent the spread of viruses, Welsh maintains. Once again, “remember what Grandma and Mom always did. If there was a sick member of the family, they always did extra cleaning, and the house was spick-and-span.”

For those who do get sick, “stay home if you can,” Ruther announces.

Welsh adds, “It’s not time to be heading to the neighbor’s party .... If you’re not feeling well and you go to the doctor, remember to do what the doctor says. Many times people don’t finish their prescriptions, which may be prescribed for a week. After four days, you may be feeling better, so you stop taking it, but you never quite get over” the sickness.

“Follow the doctor’s instructions, but if the medicine doesn’t respond the way the physician thought it would or what you expected it to do, let the physician know because maybe you have an immunity to it or something else needs to be prescribed.”

In addition, “do your own health care reform. When you go to the doctor or emergency room, be prepared by knowing what medicines you take and what questions you want to ask so you don’t forget anything.”
