Chief physician of Moscow: in the cold synthetic is better not to wear

January 19 2006

In case of frostbite should immediately contact a doctor and do not seek traditional, it was declared by the chief physician of Moscow Leonid Lazebnik.

"If there is any suspicion of frostbite should immediately contact a doctor and not self-medicate," - said L. Lazebnik.

He also stressed: "Do not rub frostbitten limbs with snow, it could lead to even more serious consequences."

In addition, he urged Muscovites do not wear clothes made of synthetic materials in the cold days, as the frosty air, hitting between such clothing and body, can cause a burn with cold.

The doctor also advised the citizens as possible to limit time spent outdoors for 15-20 minutes, trying to breathe through a scarf in the street and not move fast pace. Reports Interfax
