Monsoon Precautions You Must Follow

Monsoon is the time to rejoice the cool breeze, the petrichor and the relief from summer’s scorching heat. But the rainy season is also the most precarious time of the year when it comes to your health.  It’s the time when incidences of diseases like dengue, malaria, typhoid, etc. are very high. Here are some precautionary measures that will help you stay fit and fine this monsoon.

  1. Avoid Outside Food

Road side chats and pre-cut salads might be quite enticing but indulging in them could lead to food poisoning and diarrhoea. These foods mainly contain raw fruits and vegetables which might be unclean. Also, raw foods lying in the open become a good breeding spot for germs and worms especially when the atmosphere is wet or humid.

  1. Avoid Oily Food & Sea Food

Due to humidity, our digestion slows down making the stomach more susceptible to bloating and tummy upsets. In such a scenario, munching on samosas, pakodas and bhajis can take its toll on your already weak digestive system. Coming to sea food, monsoon is generally the breeding season for fish and other water creatures due to which getting a fresh catch is difficult. Therefore, chances of consuming comparatively stale fish are high that can lead to stomach infections.

  1. Stay Hydrated

Drink a lot of water to flush out the toxins and to improve your immunity. But make sure to consume only safe and purified water as monsoon is the season for water borne diseases like cholera and typhoid. Boil the water if needed and avoid direct consumption of tap water. It’s also advised to stay away from fruit juices and iced drinks prepared at food joints. Drinking carbonated drinks can reduce the amount of minerals in your body thus making you more prone to contracting diseases.  Instead, relish a cup of green tea or ginger tea which is not only healthy but also soothing and warm.

  1. Maintain Personal Hygiene

Wash your hands thoroughly before meals. Take cautious care of open wounds to keep them germfree. Keep yourself dry always. Have a bath immediately whenever you get wet during a downpour.  Wear closed shoes that allow minimum contact of your feet with puddle water. Also, don’t forget to wash your face regularly in the day to remove excess oil and to avoid pimples and other skin problems.

  1. Keep Mosquitoes Away

Use mosquito repellent sprays, coils etc. to keep mosquitoes from biting you as they are the carriers of malaria, dengue and chikungunya. Wear full sleeved clothes to reduce the chances of getting bitten by them. Apply mosquito repellent creams. Try to keep your surroundings clean by keeping garbage bins dry and covered and by not allowing water to stagnate in the balconies, compound and streets. Water clogging is only an invitation for diseases as it serves as a perfect source for mosquito breeding. Therefore, cover water pits and puddles with sand or mud or insecticides.

While these suggestions will definitely help keep illnesses at bay, you might still experience symptoms like fever, weakness, body pains, sore throat, etc. In that case, visit your doctor and a diagnostic centre such as Apollo Diagnostics and get tested immediately. The pathological technicians at Apollo Diagnostics will be able to diagnose your condition accurately using their expertise, experience, and state-of-the-art technology. Apollo Diagnostics even provides a free home collection service for your ease and convenience.
