Rainy season is the season that brings happiness to people’s life as it makes the environment cool after the hot and scorching sun. But there are some things that you need to consider in regards to health risks.
Clothes: One should wear cotton clothes and loose clothes and use talcum powder that are anti-fungal in areas more prone to fungal infections. Avoid wearing clothes like Jeans which does not dry immediately.
Shower after coming out from rain: Although it sounds very unusual because if you are drenched in rain, you will never want to take another shower. But taking a hot shower after you have been caught in the rain will protect you from many infections.
Hot Drinks: This is the one season when you would like to take hot drinks. After taking a good bath, dry yourself and wear dry & clean clothes. The best thing is to make a hot soup for yourself or at least drink a cup of hot milk. This will help you from catching cold or save you from catching any kind of infection that can occur due to sudden change in the temperature of the body.
Take Vitamin C: There has been a lot of contradictions when it comes to the effect of vitamin C on good health but one thing that still holds true is the fact that it has an overall effect on individual immune system. It helps to stop catarrh and cough.
Sleep Well: According to a report, sleeping for eight hours daily can do a lot to boost the immune system. Scientifically, people that sleep between 5 to 6 hours every night have a 30 percent risk of catching a cold if they become exposed to a virus. On the other hand, people that get up to 8 hours sleep only have a 17 percent risk. By sleeping more, you’d most likely fall sick less.
