During monsoon eat healthy and stay healthy


With monsoon comes ailments. Gone are those days when parents fearlessly let children enjoy rains…. drenched to the bone, dance, jump in mud puddle, make paper boats and let it sail down the small stream in front of the house…

Unlike earlier, especially urban parents are lot worried these days. In villages, children still enjoy these simple pleasures of life. “It’s the dust and other pollutants in air gets mixed with the rain water that causes allergy to the children in cities. Children who are prone to allergy is better to stay away from getting soaked in rain,” says Doctor Divya Gorur, Dermatologist.

“One do not catch cold by getting wet in rain. If children are not prone to allergies, they can enjoy the rain with precautions. After getting wet, one should avoid eating ice cream or cold drinks. A hot shower and hot beverage is advisable,” says Doctor Gorur.

Earlier days, there was no Dengue nor Chikungunya. Now, with monsoon, threat of these mosquito borne illness looms in.

“With monsoon setting in, water, air and mosquito borne illness increases. It is better not to eat uncooked food outside and always keep your surroundings clean. Do not let water stagnate anywhere,” she adds.
