I've now gone down with my second cold in less than a month, this one accompanied by a persistent chesty cough. I also have blepharitis in my left eye that is fighting hard against the antibiotic drops that the doctor gave me. I've conquered a silly Deliveroo habit and eat a pretty healthy diet, with lots of vegetables and 2 or 3 pieces of fruit per day, no sugar or white carbs - lots of garlic, ginger and turmeric for flavouring.
Has anybody any useful tips on how I can give my immune system a boost? Also, is it a good idea to take echinacea to ward off further colds? I've had my flu and pneumonia jabs. My current dosage is 12.5 mg daily of pred and 15 mg weekly of methotrexate.
