Low immunity can be divided into three categories: congenital low immunity, acquired secondary low immunity and physiological low immunity. Congenital low immunity is also called immunodeficiency. Some children who often catch colds and fevers are likely to be caused by congenital immune deficiency. The immunodeficiency needs to be judged by a professional doctor, and the cause can be determined before the right medicine can be prescribed.
