7 Most Contagious Diseases During Monsoon

For some, it’s a surreal experience, as they go on to explore exotic locations that are at their vivacious best; for others, it’s a struggle to reach their workplace, even as they fight rains, mostly with an umbrella, or with raincoats or jackets. It’s monsoon that makes the nature breathtakingly beautiful; and it is the same monsoon that troubles people – either by affecting their daily lives by torrential rains; or by stoking already widespread contagious diseases.

When a majority of people struggle to find their old stock of paracetamol tablets, the same tablets they dilapidated the previous year anticipating they would never be used, you know the monsoons are hitting hard, and a flurry of contagious diseases are knocking the door, with a few of them having already set a foot in. While monsoon is home to quite a few contagious diseases, let’s take a look at seven diseases that are the most common and likely to affect you this monsoon.

Cold and Flu

While cold and flu can affect an individual throughout the year, it is most likely to affect people during monsoon, with fluctuating climates creating an ideal environment for a host of viruses to dwell. Affected patients generally get fever and cold that may last for around 3 or 7 days and a simple dose of paracetamol can help control the fever. If the patient experiences high fever, it’s wise to consult a Doctor and start an antibiotic course. Sore throat, sneezing and running nose are an early symptom of a typical flu attack. While you cannot do a lot to avoid it, it’s wise to keep your body well hydrated to try and avoid cold and flu. Avoid unhygienic cold drinks and raw roadside food as much as possible.

It’s just another day for you at work; you handover one of the most important dossiers to your Team, signed and sealed, for execution and come back to your cabin, where a glass of cool water is kept next to one of those flamboyant paper-weights you gifted yourself recently. You sit on your comfortable high-back chair with a soft, heavily cushioned backrest, pushing it back, to relax after an eventful, busy first half. You pick up the glass of water, eyes transfixed on the gorgeous paperweight. Just as you start sipping water, you feel a light, but significant pain behind your eyes. Within moments, you also realize you have a light headache. The pain still isn’t excruciating, but it’s significant and unlike any pain you have felt so far.

By evening, the headache has gotten severe and the pain behind your eyes is a lot more pronounced. You can also sense you have high fever and the intermittent nausea you seemed to have developed doesn’t exactly let you enjoy your evening Tea. You drive back home, feeling fatigued. By late evening, your muscles and joints are already in writhing pain. Paracetamol made you feel better, but only for a couple of hours. You call up your physician. He asks you to eat an antibiotic, preferably Taxim-O, twice a day for three days and asks you to update. “If you don’t feel better, we will investigate” he assures. “Make sure you keep yourself hydrated. Drink lot of water and avoiding eating anything that’s oily and too spicy”, he reiterates. Three days later, it has only gotten worse. You have developed rashes as well, on your skin. The pain in muscles and joints has gotten worse, and the pain behind your eyes keeps visiting every couple of hours, growing in its intensity with each visit. You call up your physician. He asks you to get a few Tests done, one of which is for Dengue. A few hours later, your physician calls you up, “You have dengue. Please get admitted”.
