    The major reason of unhealthy in rainy season is due to eating and drinking unhygienic eatables. Due to lack of sunlight in rainy days the bad bacteria or germs are turn out to be vigorous; due to which we must drink boiled water and fresh / hot cooked items instead of any outside fast foods.

    While staying in house, we must close all the doors and windows to block mosquitoes and other insects which are harmful children and everyone. While sleeping we must use mosquito nets to be protected from mosquitoes that causes to dengue or malaria like diseases.

    I generally take bath with warm water during rainy season and winter. I also take comfortably warm water boiled with a teaspoon of coriander and jeera seeds.
    Let us keep faith on ourselves and work sincerely, not leave everything to fate.

    Appreciation to the author for giving good tips to take care during the rainy season which gives challenging moments to everyone. It is natural that during rainy season we feel like eating some hot snacks and surely the road side Mirch Bajji fellow be the attraction. But please take care that the street vendor is preparing the items without having protection to prevent dust and other possible inclusion to the oil which is being used to cook. Better to avoid eating at those places and instead prefer to make the same at home and have it with your family and children. Instead of having normal tea, have tea prepared from Dania powder which is good for this season.

    Incidentally eating bitter vegetables like bitter gourd, and other bitter tasting items like neem, turmeric powder and fenugreek seeds help in preventing infections.
    Too spicy/hot foods increase body temperature and stimulate blood circulation which may lead to allergies, skin irritation, boils, change in skin color, dullness, rashes, pyoderma etc.
    One has to be particularly careful about changing undergarments during monsoon season after getting wet outdoor.
