Ok, so I know the pit isn't exactly brimming with doctors, but I have a ****ty resistance to illness, especially colds/flus it seems. I'm very concerned about it this year for obvious reasons (see: swine flu) and was wondering if anyone else is the same or if there could be something wrong with me. Whenever I come into contact with anyone who has a cold/flu, I ALWAYS catch it without fail, and usually end up getting it several times especially during the winter months when it's going around. I had a cold last month, and I can feel one coming on after being out with my friend on Monday night who said he was recovering from swine (it was probably not swine though).

What do I do to change this?

HIV?


But seriously, try taking more vitamins. If your body isn't getting enough, your immune system will suffer.

roll around and play in dirt like any normal child should have, and in exposing yourself ti bacteria and viruses you will build up immunities.


plus vitamin C is your friend now.

I drink those little bottles of yogurt daily that have good bacteria in them.

That's for your digestive system. Bacteria doesn't prevent or fight off illness. Learn how to take care of your body more efficiently. You only get one.

Dirty house always beating down your immune system? That's what happened with my brother and I, when we were young we were ALWAYS sick (I mean be healthy for 2-3 weeks, get sick again, be out for a month, repeat). As it would turn out, the insides of our house was covered with mold. Our family moved out to a new house, with no mold in the walls. Helped a lot.

Also, from our childhood we learned that it takes 8 months for the immune system to fully recover after a bad illness (such as the flu, bronchitis, etc...). Perhaps even though you get better your immune system has not had the chance to fully recover, maming you more susecptible to illness.

I'd be concerned too, at your age, things should be getting soft and flabby, not stiff.

This illness, I'm afraid has no cure. It is known by many names, but in the scientific community it is known as feminaeistic balanitis.

The only know treatment is to...i'm sorry to say this but engage in penetrative acts with others.

You are doomed to a life of such treatment if you wish to live a somewhat normal life.

Unless you're often subjected to high stress or low temperatures, higher vitamin C intake will do you far less good than people think it will. Increased vitamin C even then only has a marked effect in those who were deficient in it in the first place.

Practicing good hygiene and maintaining a healthy diet are the best things to do.

This is so wrong it's untrue. Bacteria are one of the first lines of defence against pathogens. Your body is crawling with bacteria, inside and out. Most of these are either harmless, or in small enough populations not to cause harm. Illness occurs when something happens to the body, through diet or otherwise, that allows a pathogenic bacteria to proliferate on/in the body, or an existing bacteria to reproduce to pathogenic levels. This can, and does, happen a lot in the intestines. Normally, "good" bacteria are already using the resources- space, moisture, food. So yes, bacteria does prevent, and can indeed fight off illness, through compeition of resources, which good bacteria normally wins, because it was there first.
