How to remain safe and prevent common illnesses during Monsoon
In the monsoon, water-borne illnesses are frequent. We learn how to avoid them from Dr. Bhavana Clinical Research Director Consultant, Internal Medicine, IEEARC Tech. “Water-borne infections tend to be more common during the monsoon because water sources are more contaminated. However, there are a number of precautions that can help reduce the likelihood of developing these diseases.
Water supply safety is the first step in ensuring safe drinking water. Drinking filtered or boiling water is advised. Water that has been professionally packaged can be utilised if none of these options are available.
Maintaining good personal hygiene is essential. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, especially after using the lavatory or before touching or consuming any food.
Storage of water: To guard against contamination by bugs, dirt, or other contaminants, store water in sanitary, covered containers. To keep the water safe, regularly clean and disinfect water storage containers.
Food safety: Be mindful of proper food handling procedures. Foods that may have been washed in contaminated water, such as shellfish and vegetables, should not be eaten fresh or uncooked.
Avoid street food: Although it may be tempting, it is best to exercise caution when eating street food during the monsoon season. The water used to prepare food may not be safe, which could result in pollution and a higher risk of water-borne illnesses.
What skin problems are possible during the monsoon?
Due to the increased humidity, wetness, and exposure to water during the monsoon season, some skin conditions are more prevalent. Following are a few examples of skin conditions that might develop now:
Infections caused by fungi: The monsoon season’s humid and wet weather provides the perfect circumstances for fungus to develop. There is a high prevalence of skin fungus infections such ringworm, athlete’s foot, and fungal nail infections.
Acne and breakouts: Increasing humidity can cause the skin to produce too much oil, which can clog pores and cause breakouts of acne. Sweat, grime, and germs can aggravate already present acne or cause new outbreaks.
Dermatitis and eczema: Those who already have dermatitis or eczema may develop flare-ups during the monsoon.
