Vitamins A and D can neutralize each other, vitamins E and D need to be taken only at different times of the day, and if vitamin B1 is combined with B12 it can cause an allergic reaction. That is, everything is individual. It is necessary to consult a doctor.

AZIZA USACHEVA, IMMUNOLOGIST-ALLERGOLOGIST:
- Are skin tests carried out to identify "what for"? We already know that there is an allergen, what and how strongly it is expressed - this is one stage. And the second stage, which makes it possible to cure, to cope with this disease from the identified allergen. A vaccine is being prepared.
According to the doctor, chronic diseases cannot be started at this time, since the immune system works continuously, which is why it weakens and malfunctions. And, of course, in addition to vitamins, you need to monitor your diet, sleep well and lead an active lifestyle.
