Tips to Avoid Diseases during Monsoon Season

Monsoon is the season that is long-awaited to reduce the scorching temperature. Apart from lowering the temperatures, rains cleanse the atmosphere, the ground, and everything it touches. But as it is known, with good comes the bad. Excessive rains or improper infrastructure can lead to clogging of water bodies in many areas, especially in low-developed regions. Accumulated water bodies attract mosquito breeding that leads to the spread of many infectious diseases like dengue and malaria. Viral infections are also common during the rainy season.

Additionally, the humid atmosphere can also cause fungal infections and skin diseases if proper care is not taken. Moreover, if you are a patient of chronic skin diseases like acne, psoriasis, and eczema, there are high chances that your infections get worse during the season. But, if you come in contact with any of the infections even after taking good care, you need not worry your pockets with the monsoon insurance cover.

Tips to Avoid Diseases during the Rainy Season

  • Majority of the Indians are fond of street foods. But monsoon season is just not the right time to delight your taste buds. Street foods have a high chance of getting contaminated with many infections. Therefore, it is always ideal to avoid them during this season.
  • Use good quality insect repellents to avoid mosquito bite or other insect bites that are the primary source of spreading infections.
  • Keep yourself dry and clean as and when possible and disinfect your room and your bathing water.
  • Make sure to intake foods and drinks that have high antibacterial properties.
  • Avoid staying in damped clothes for a long time and consider taking edibles rich in Vitamin C to boost your immune system.
