Summer Season and related diseases.

Summer Season and related diseases.

Summer days are not only  days to enjoy, but these are  also the days to welcome illness.

Dear parents, please go through all the illness and their prevention:

  • Food poisoning

 During summer many experiences food poisoning, because bacteria will cultivate well in the warm, moist poisoning

Food poisoning can be prevented by frequently washing your hands and cooking surfaces, and also cooking foods to their proper temperature and promptly refrigerating leftovers.


  • Viral infection

A viral infection is more in this season, no matter what activity you engage in, it’s important to protect yourself against common infection in this season of heat and dust.

Varicella (chickenpox) infection, dengue is common in this season.

  • The best way to prevent chickenpox is to get the chickenpox vaccine and make your kids stay away from school / day-care if they’re not feeling well, in that way we can prevent the spread of airborne viral infections.
  • Always keep yourself nourished; to prevent the ill-effects of summer.
  • Once in a while drink tulsi water or jeera water.
  • Keep yourself hydrated.

Mosquito-borne infections like dengue fever, malaria, and yellow fever are common in the summer, specifically late summer and early autumn. Aedes (dengue) mosquitoes typically bite day time.

How to prevent mosquito bite:

  • Keep your home and surroundings mosquito free as far as possible, mosquitos can breed from stagnant water like a gutter, pond, etc.
  • Close all windows and doors with mesh windows open for air circulation.
  • Try to avoid artificial and synthetic repellents that are not good for babies and pregnant ladies, instead use natural repellent which is available in the market.
  • Sleep under mosquito nets.


  •     Eye infection:

 During summer ultraviolet rays cause sunburned cornea, increased risk of cataracts.

  • Sunglasses are recommended for kids of all ages who can handle the glass properly. Purchase sunglasses which can filter both UVB and UVA rays.
  • Keep yourself cool and hydrated.


  • Bacterial and Fungal infection:

Bacterial infection includes – ear infections such as swimmer’s ear and skin infection like furuncles (boils).

  • Get a child’s ears dried thoroughly after exposure to moisture from swimming or bathing. Only the outer ear should be made dried, wiping it slowly and gently with a soft towel or cloth – by doing this it will prevent swimmers ear infection.

Fungal infection generally happens when the wet parts of the body become easy targets for fungi, causing rashes and itching sensation.

  • Regular baths and wearing clean clothes can prevent these infections.


  • Heat rashes:

This occurs when the skin’s sweat glands are blocked and the sweat produced cannot get to the surface of the skin to evaporate.

Heat rash looks like small bumps and blisters; the skin turns red which leads to prickly sensation. It normally clears up on its own after a few days, but in some situations, we need to visit a doctor.

The commonplace for prickly heat to occur is face, neck, shoulder, and chest. It can affect anyone, but children’s are more likely to have it than adults.

Suggestion: During these times calamine lotion can be used to reduce the symptoms of redness, irritation, and swelling or you can apply talcum powder but do not overdo it especially for babies.

Before applying calamine lotion take suggestions from your doctor.

Ensure the child is hydrated and sweat free.

Once again, hi/hello/Namaskar to our lovely and Caring MoMsters. First, let me introduce about common cold briefly & later we can jump into safe home remedies for our little wonders!

The common cold can be caused by more than 200 different viruses. – (uff so many viruses!) Virus which causes cold

Yes, babies and toddlers are more susceptible to the common cold. Most children have at least 12 colds in the first 2 years of life.

Each cold can last about 2 weeks. (Yup it’s a struggle period for all moms).

Symptoms of a cold with both babies and toddler

when to see a doctor when baby is suffering with cold

  • Decreased appetite (for toddlers).
  • Sore throat.
  • Mild fever (101-102 degree F).
  • Feeling tired and fussy.
  • Slightly swollen glands.

Most of the parents wonder, why do doctors prescribe antibiotics for small kids.

There is no medical cure for the common cold and each symptom is treated separately.

When a doctor diagnoses symptoms related to acute bronchitis, Pneumonia, or Acute bacterial sinusitis, only then he prescribes antibiotics to treat because these infections are bacterial and not viral.
