Russians talked about negative consequences of self-medication for coronavirus

Self-treatment of coronavirus can lead to a number of negative consequences, in particular, the occurrence of rash and nausea. The Russians who experienced them told about similar symptoms to Gazeta.Ru.

So, a 23-year-old resident of Tula, Alexander, admitted that, upon learning that he had contracted the coronavirus, he began to take antibiotics, although from the symptoms he only had a runny nose and a low temperature. On the fifth day of admission, the young man felt severe pain in his stomach. As a result, he was forced to see a doctor, who diagnosed him with gastritis.

“Moreover, the disease immediately took on a chronic form due to the fact that specific lesions of the inner lining of the stomach occurred. Now I live with it, so I advise you to stay away from antibiotics unnecessarily,” he said.

Another Russian woman, 36-year-old Vera from Tver, decided to take vitamin D as a preventive measure without a doctor’s prescription. After a while, a rash appeared on her face, and then other symptoms began to appear: constant thirst, constipation and nausea. Soon, the woman became infected with the coronavirus, while doctors noticed that the infection had seriously affected her kidneys. As it turned out, the reason for this was the uncontrolled intake of vitamin D.

Another interlocutor of the publication, a 30-year-old resident of St. Petersburg Dana, said that she tried to cure COVID-19 with hormonal drugs – she read about this method on the Internet. “Whether due to drugs or not, I was cured of covid. But after canceling the pills, I realized that I have constantly high blood pressure, which is why I often feel dizzy, nauseous. Then dry mouth, frequent urination, were added to this. it seemed that I even began to see worse, “the woman complained.

In the end, she decided to be examined by an endocrinologist, who recorded an increase in her blood sugar level. According to the Petersburg woman, this was the result of taking hormones. Now the woman has to take medications and be monitored by doctors.

Earlier in November, Marina Shestakova, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Endocrinologist, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, spoke about the hidden threat posed by the coronavirus. According to her, restrictions and self-isolation have caused a decrease in physical activity, leading to the development of obesity.
