Monsoon season brings all the benefits of beautiful weather, green landscapes and long drives. Monsoon season is refreshing, but may not be good for our skin. Due to the constant exposure to contaminated water and the humid monsoon environment, skin conditions such as eczema and athlete’s feet, as well as eczema and acne breakout can occur. Patients with diabetes should be especially cautious as there are greater chances of skin problems triggered by monsoon. Look at here to know how to get rid of these problems using homoeopathy.
These are the main factors that can trigger or give rise to an event:
Hygiene: Practice good hygiene. It is possible to have skin problems if proper hygiene isn’t maintained during the monsoon. This could include not taking a bath or washing your feet regularly.
Clothing: Clothes are also important. Your feet can become irritated if you wear socks and shoes for long periods. Shoes and socks made from synthetic, non-breathable materials will absorb sweat and keep your feet moist. Synthetic clothes are also not breathable and sweat cannot evaporate.
Your health is a key factor in how well you can protect yourself from further infections and diseases. If you have diabetes or obesity, and other immune-compromised conditions, skin-to-skin contact, such as sharing clothes with someone already suffering from skin infection, can increase your chances of contracting it.
