Monsoon is everyone’s favourite, because it provides respite from the severe summer heat. But, unfortunately, it also brings with it a host of diseases!
Following are some preventive measures you can take to stay healthy this season:
- Take a shower as soon as you reach home after getting soaked in rain – If you get drenched in rain, it’s important to take a hot shower, to get rid of the germs. Also, avoid entering in an air-conditioned room when you are wet, as you can easily get cold and cough with the change in temperature.
- Avoid eating street food – We all crave for hot pakoras and spicy street food in these rains, but the chances of these foods being contaminated are higher in this season. Street food can wait, but your health can’t. So, avoid these foods if you want to enjoy the rains in the best of your health!
- Keep your house clean – Viral infections like malaria, dengue, typhoid and cholera are rampant during this season. So, keep your house clean and pest-free, and replace the broken drainpipes as they are the breeding ground for germs.
- Wash your hands frequently – We all struggle with seasonal flus and cold at this time of the weather. Therefore, it’s important to wash hands before/after we eat to prevent diseases and infections.
- Keep yourself hydrated – Staying hydrated is the solution for all your health problems; as it builds up your resistance to fight infections. Drink at least 10 glasses of water and avoid tea, coffee if you can, and switch to green tea/juices to stay healthy.
If you still get ill even after following all the preventive measures, don’t hesitate to visit a doctor for the treatment! You can also avail Oncquest’s health tests to stay protected against these common monsoon diseases like Dengue, Malaria, Chikungunya, Diarrhea and Typhoid.
Stay safe and have a happy monsoon!
