Adjust to weather change - Pharmacist
Nigerians have been advised to adjust to the current weather condition which is causing not only dry skin, but upper respiratory tract infections resulting into coughs and sore throat, by keeping warm.
Pharmacist Lanre Alege of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital (UITH) during the December edition of the monthly keep fit exercise for staffers of the medical institution observed that the cold morning, sunny afternoon and cold evening were a bit harsh.
He encouraged Nigerians to keep warm by wearing protective garments, and also use creams like petroleum jelly or Shea Butter on their skin, and take a lot of fruits and water.
