Actually, we become sick when our immune system is weak. When our immune is strong, the bacteria and virus couldn't get a chance to attack us and make us sick. Even if we are sick, the symptom is light and we could recover very soon. So, I will avoid going to doctors unless very ill. I try my best to keep my immune system strong. To stay healthy is not difficult. We just need to have nutritious food, regular exercise and ample time of sleep and rest. I will usually go to the doctor to get the M.C.

Hi Cheongyc, Thank you for your comment. For me, I will visit a doctor once I have not recovered from my sickness for 2 days time. Because I have to takecare of my son, So I can't wait for long to get my body to recover itself. The fastest way is to look for a doctor, get medicine,sometimes will ask for injection for speedy recovery too. I agreed with you, eating nutrition food and have enough sleep are quite important for our body to stay healthy.

Hi Shia88, you are most welcome, and thanks for agreeing with me. I too, will go to doctor if my sickness is persistent for more than two days. This is for a thorough checkup in case a serious infection is happening and might need an injection. Happy posting and have a nice day!

No i don't visit doctor when i fall sick. At first i do take medicine that i have in my home. If i am in serious condition then i visit doctor which is very rare in my life. Moreover before visit any doctor i do consult with doctor by phone and take medicine and eat if i don't recover then i do visit doctor.

Hi, I believe nobody like to visit a doctor,unless it is really necessary. For me, I will only visit a doctor after 2 days of home medication and shows no recovery sign. That is because with small kid at home, I have to get speedy recovery,that is to prevent my son get the virus from me. I remembered there was once I was having sore throat for few days,but I don't really bother much and slept with my son everynight. A few days later, my son started to get fever and his fever always shot up high in the midnight. After bringing him to the paed,his throat was infection and red,that is why he has a high fever on and off. According to the paed, throat infection virus can be trasmitted through air and my son is most probably got it from me as we slept together every night. From that time onward, I always take extra precaution when I fall sick.I will sleep at separate room and try not to get too close to my son until I am fully recovered.

Hi, There was once I was having a bad cough. I have visited doctor and eat the cough syrup,but no recovery sign although I almost finished up the whole bottle of the cough syrup.then my mother in law suggested me to drink Almond water,which can be obtained from supermarket. So that night, I gave it a try..drank a cup of warm almond water before going to bed and Amazingly,it really helps to cure my cough. I never coughed during midnight and I can sleep soundly throughout the night. So sometimes doctor may give some medicine,but it does not mean it will guarante 100% recovery. sometimes our body just rejected the medicine and do not show any recovery sign. From that time onward, I always standby a bottle of almond water inside the fridge,...I can drink anytime I want.

I don't like to go to see the doctor, too. If it is not serious, I prefer to hold on for several days and see whether my situation gets better. If not, I will try to take some medicine. If I still feel bad, then finally I have to go to see the doctor. I love China

Hi, I guess most people hate to visit a doctor. I myself don't like to visit a doctor unless my sickness is getting worse and show no recovery sign after home medication. Normally, I will give myself for 2 days,if within that 2 days the virus still bugging me,then it is the time for me to seek for medical advices. Sometimes, I may opt for an injection for speedy recovery. That is because I have small kid at home, and I really don't want the virus to spread to my little boy, to take precaution, that is why I opt for injection and also will sleep at separate room from my son. I even prepared a mask to be wear at home when I get near to my son,that is a kind of prevention that have to be done. However,small kid may have low immune system and sometimes, my son will also get the same virus from me a few days later.

So many times, I would not be well just by taking home medicines for a week or so, until I visit a doctor. There might be two reasons. One is the flu takes about ten days to recover, even by effort of your immune system, or rest and water, anyway. And the other is after consulting the doctor, you have the psychological effect, which functions in turn to the physical organs in a positive manner.

After eating own medicine and if still not yet recover,it is best to consult with a doctor. Better don't drag it too long.
