Skin Care In Rainy season

Fungal infections in Monsoon

A fungus grows in humidity – specially like wet skin folds rubbing against each other get macerated easily, providing easy entry to fungi. As a result, there develops itchy, round, reddish, flaking patches on the body, especially in skin folds at the groin , underarms and around the breast in women. Fungal infections can also affect your feet, especially if you wear closed shoes all day. —Scabies is another common infection that preys on both children and adults during the monsoon.

A few tips to avoid fungal infections are:-Once you are seated at your desk, take your shoes and socks off to allow air circulation around your feet. Wear sandals or floaters as far as possible.-Use plenty of dusting talc to prevent accumulation of sweat and moisture in skin folds.-Wash your feet with soap and hot water after wading through stagnant water and then dry them completely.
