The first signs of a decrease in immunity are: increased fatigue, drowsiness, weakness, dryness and peeling of the skin. These health problems indicate that the body collects all the forces of the body and directs them to fight against negative factors. The manifestation of these symptoms portends an exacerbation of chronic diseases and the emergence of new ones. Irritability and nervousness are also signs of decreased immunity, as mental health is directly related to physical health.
