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.

Know Your Blood Group with Blood Type Chart

Know Your Blood Group with Blood Type Chart

.

The most important purpose to know your blood group is for the times of medical adversity. At the time of an emergency like lack of basic health components in the body like hemoglobin or at an event of an accident where in an external supply of the blood (transfusion) is essential, the knowledge of your blood group becomes vital. Hence it is essential and extremely crucial to get a blood test done.

What are Blood Group or Blood Types

A blood type (also called a blood group) is a classification of blood based on the presence and absence of antibodies and based on the presence or absence of inherited antigenic substances on the surface of red blood cells (RBCs). These antigens may be proteins, carbohydrates, glycoproteins, or glycolipids, depending on the blood group system. Some of these antigens are also present on the surface of other types of cells of various tissues. Several of these red blood cell surface antigens can stem from one allele (or an alternative version of a gene) and collectively form a blood group system.

ABO types -

ABO types were the first of the discoveries.

  • Group A – Antigen A with antibody B
  • Group B – Antigen B with antibody A
  • Group AB – Antigen AB has no antibodies
  • Group O – Antigen nil (group O) with antibody A and B.

Rh types -

There are 5 main Rhesus (Rh) antigens on red cells – C, c, D, E, e.

The most important of these is the Rh D group. The positive (+) or the negative (-) after the letter A, B, AB or O is given by the D antigen on the red cell. In general practice, Rh negative blood is given to Rh-negative patients, and Rh-positive blood or Rh-negative blood may be given to Rh positive patients.

The universal red cell donor has Type O negative blood type.

The universal plasma donor has Type AB blood type.

Blood Matches

It is essential to know the blood matches as that decides the availability of blood and the readiness of transfusion from one body to the other.

  • Group O can donate red cells to anybody. It’s the universal donor O
  • Group A can donate red cells to A’s and B’s
  • Group B can donate red blood cells to B’s and AB’s
  • Group AB can give blood only to other AB’s but can receive from all others
Donor Recipient
O O A B AB
A X A B X
B X X B AB
AB X X X AB


Blood Type Determination

It is inherited. Like eye color, blood type is passed genetically from your parents. Whether your blood group is type A, B, AB or O is based on the blood types of your mother and father.

This chart shows the possible blood types you may inherit.

Parent1 AB AB AB AB B A A O O O
