I added in an initial explanation; feel free to add anything you think is needed. KirbyDude25 (talk) 19:45, 11 February 2022 (UTC)

I think the 'antihealing' advice is a two-edged sword. Just like the adage of "feed a fever, starve a cold" (however true that is), a hot-compress might at times be useful (hypothermia?), and similarly for the rest. Or most of them, anyway. A healthy person would need an excess of antimedicine to actually become ill again. Not sure where that limit lies with histamines, that might be the 'worst' to suffer, going by relative ease of application. 02:18, 12 February 2022 (UTC)

this is something like the "extremely wet cough" etc etc comic i think 02:11, 13 February 2022 (UTC)Bumpf

Agree, I added 2279: Symptoms to the explanation. --Kynde (talk) 17:03, 13 February 2022 (UTC)

I think this comic clearly is a reference to Corona pandemic... But of course it is not mentioned, but the pandemic is still raging and people get sick of it all over the world at this time. Should it be added to the list of corona comics? --Kynde (talk) 17:03, 13 February 2022 (UTC)

No, I disagree. This comic is about general sickness so it should not be added to the covid category. 05:23, 14 February 2022 (UTC)

I've been thinking of adding a "general sickness" category, but I don't know what the Category should be named. Sickness? Illness? Natg19 (talk) 20:23, 14 February 2022 (UTC)
I think anything that *could* be covid related and is published during the "era of covid" should be put in the covid category (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
Whereas I think the covid category might be relevant here, I also think that we might never get fully out of this era... So maybe not for that reason alone... --Kynde (talk) 10:59, 15 February 2022 (UTC)

This comic really doesn't ring true for me. I mean, when someone has recovered from something, we often say "In future, make sure you don't overdo it, or you'll get sick again". Saying the opposite is... odd, I guess. Thisfox (talk) 22:48, 15 February 2022 (UTC)

That's the point. Black Hat does the opposite of what "typical" people to troll them or make their lives miserable. 18:33, 16 February 2022 (UTC)
