Tips & Tricks to avoid Seasonal Infections and Fever

Monsoons are always welcome after the sweltering summer heat (Especially If the temperature is 45-48 degrees) but with its pleasant breeze, it also brings some unwelcoming guests like Dengue, Malaria, Fever, Upset stomach, Running nose and Sore throat. I have found some tips and tricks to stay away from these things as last year I suffered from Dengue and had to bear the consequences for next 6 months at least.

So here we go:

Drink lots of water, regardless of your activity levels.

Drink water, hot beverages, but do not compensate your liquid intake with carbonated, caffeinated, and alcoholic drinks.

Herbal teas with antibacterial properties are a good idea, Lemon water, fresh fruit juices etc

Drink only filtered or boiled water

Diseases in the rainy season are mostly water-borne so make sure you only drink water that is filtered or boiled. Its all about clean water in this weather.

Follow a healthy diet.

This is the season where the body and especially the digestive system and respiratory system gets infected easily. It is also important to maintain a healthy diet in rainy season, which means that your favourite chaat, juices, golas, kulfis and other street food should be avoided. Even avoid raw vegetables and salads unless they are consumed at home where you can wash and clean them thoroughly. Fish should be avoided as well. 

Avoid walking in the rain. 

Screen Shot 2018-07-28 at 12.49.58 PMI know its a favourite part of this season and as much as it is tempting, walking in rain water makes you prone to a host of viral diseases and can also cause numerous fungal infections at the feet and nails.

Please follow this if you get wet in rain:

Keeping an extra pair of clothes and footwear in the office is a good idea.

If your feet get wet, dry them immediately and do not stay in wet socks or shoes.

Don’t sit under the fan or Ac to dry your clothes, change them immediately.

Diabetics especially must take extra care and avoid walking barefoot as the ground is rife with all kinds of germs.

Home remedies for sore throat and running nose:


Drink Ginger or lemon tea as much as possible.

Drink warm water (I keep mine in flask mixed with a lemon and keep drinking that all day)

Breathe deep on the steam of your tea or boiled water

Early morning doing gargle and nasal irrigation with warm salt water will help your throat and nose.

Washing your face with cold water will help your eyes

Make a mix of – One table spoon ginger juice mixed with a tea spoon honey and some black pepper along with few basil leaves- drink it after you gargle and you will see magical results.

Always cover your throat while being in AC or Fan with a scarf or clear neck.

I Hope these tips and tricks help you and you feel better or dont get these dreadful infections at all. I just spent a week in bed but I am glad I am now better and shall get back to work in couple of days. And thank you so much to each and everyone for reading my blog and motivating me to write more and more. Shukriya.

  6. Always a delight to read your post, Arouba!

    A couple of things if I may add that has helped me out since the last year:
    * Eat 1 piece of raw garlic with honey in the morning
    * Take a teaspoon of turmeric in hot milk before going to bed. I take it with chyavanprash , which also seems to help bring the immunity up.
