Monsoon is synonymous not just with pouring rains but also diseases. You’ll step into a poodle-full of infections throughout the season. Feel blessed if your immune system can handle extremes against dengue, conjunctivitis and viral infections. If not, then the following home remedies will take care of you in the best way possible.
Dengue fever is transmitted by Aedes mosquito. There is no vaccine to prevent dengue but you can easily avoid getting the infection by not allowing stagnation of water at home since that is the favourite spot for mosquitoes to breed.
Pink eye as conjunctivitis is commonly referred to is caused due to viral and in some cases due to bacterial infections. It is highly contagious in nature and it tends to spread through contaminated water and objects such as sharing towels and clothes.
Viral infections are spread by a virus which is smaller than bacteria and can be transmitted orally and sexually. Depending upon the multiplying viruses, duration of the virus infection may vary from a couple of days to weeks.
“Eat lots of fruits especially those which are rich in Vitamin C because these tend to strengthen our immune system and flushes off toxins from the body. A layman can perhaps take paracetamol but must write down the symptoms and measure fever on the first day; investigate it a day later because the virus floats in the blood only after 24 hours,” adds Dr Mohopatra.
