How to take care of our throat during the spring months

Spring is a time of the year when temperature changes and the presence of pollen and other allergens can affect our health in general and in particular, our throat. Therefore, it is important to follow a series of tips to take proper care of this part of our body

One of the most important aspects is to maintain good hydration. Drinking water and other liquids helps to keep the throat moist and protected. On the other hand, alcoholic and caffeinated beverages should be avoided, as they can have a dehydrating effect. Another aspect to take into account is nutrition. It is advisable to follow a balanced diet rich in nutrients to strengthen the immune system and prevent infections. Irritating foods such as spicy foods, chocolate, citrus fruits and dairy products, which can increase inflammation and irritation of the throat, should be avoided. At the same time, it is important to maintain good oral and respiratory hygiene. Frequent hand washing, avoiding contact with sick people and using tissues when coughing or sneezing are measures that help prevent the spread of germs and viruses. It is also advisable to gargle with warm water and salt to soothe inflammation and keep the throat clean. Finally, it is important to avoid exposure to allergens and irritants. If you are allergic to pollen or other environmental agents, it is recommended to avoid them as much as possible and consult a specialist if symptoms persist. In addition, it is important to protect the throat from irritating substances such as tobacco smoke and air pollution. By following these simple tips, we can take proper care of our throat during the spring months and prevent discomfort and disease. In case of persistent symptoms such as pain, inflammation or difficulty in swallowing, it is important to see an ENT specialist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment
