Your immune systemis what protects your body from infections and toxins like viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites we encounter everyday in the environment. Due to various reasons, your immune system might get weakened. Dr Pradip Shah, Physician at Mumbai's Fortis hospital says that these are the 5 signs that you have a low immunity.
If you get a minor wound or even a cut, you notice that it takes several days on end to heal completely. This is another tell tale sign of a weakened immune system.
Stomach problems and suffering from frequent diarrhea is also a sign of a weak immunity. Other than diarrhea, you will also be more prone to urinary tract infections UTIs) and sensitive gums.
Don't take those skin breakouts and other symptoms like persistent itching lightly. It could be a sign of a fungal infection. Being more prone to fungal skin infections is also an indication of low immunity.
If you have more allergic reactions as compared to others, it might be a sign of a weak immunity. However, having allergies doesn't necessarily indicate that your immunity is low. 'In some cases, it could be a sign of a hyper immunity or just hyper sensitivity as allergies is a sign that your immune system is also protecting your body because they are an abnormal immune response,' says Dr Shah.
