The diseases associated with monsoon are malaria, dengue, chickungunya, jaundice, gastro intestinal infections like typhoid and cholera. Apart from these, viral infections like cold and cough also make their presence felt.

Puddles of water formed due to rain become breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Contamination of drinking water is common. It is important to drink clean and pure water to prevent diarrhea and gastro intestinal infections.

Walking in dirty water during rainy season leads to numerous fungal infections, which affect toes, and nails. Diabetic patients have to take a special care about their feet. Always keep the feet dry and clean. Avoid walking in dirty water. Keep the shoes, socks and raincoats dry and clean.

Precautions have to be taken to prevent dampness and growth of fungus (mold) on and around the house where asthmatic patients live. Avoid fumigation in case of asthmatic patients.

Worms from underground come to the surface and contaminate the surface vegetables. In the presence of weak digestive fire this can cause gastric disturbances. It is in this reason that community lunches and marriage are prohibited in this season. One should eat light foods. Consuming barley, rice and wheat is good. Water should be boiled before use.
