Who doesn’t love monsoon? After all it brings joy and relief from scorching heat but you cannot ignore the fact that it also brings number of health problems that can be downright uncomfortable. Most people complain of skin problems during rainy season and this is why we bring you this video that will give you an insight about the common skin problems that we encounter during monsoon season and how to fix them. The most common infections during monsoon include facial folliculitus, acne and ringworm.  Such infections are either bacterial or fungal. Surprisingly, people are more susceptible during this weather due to excessive sweating, dehyradtion, photo-toxic effects of the sun and humidity. Another common skin problem is Hyperhidrosis, which results in excessive sweating in the armpits, palms, soles of the feet, face, scalp and torso. Such conditions get worse during the monsoon season and lead to body odour and increase your chances of getting more infections.
