share this :

During the Monsoon, we welcome the change in temperature. However, what we don’t know is that the rains not only bring on the much-needed water but also a whole host of health problems. The number of flies and mosquitoes suddenly seem to increase all around and in the house. In order to protect ourselves from these health hazards, we need to know what the dangers are and how they can be prevented. 

There are number of disease which seems to surface during the monsoon season. As we all know that in rainy season we all face common health problems like epidemic cough & cold, influenza, viral fever due to infected water diarrhea, dysentery, cholera, typhoid, jaundice due to mosquito, malaria, dengue, chickengunia..etc.

So it’s time to give special attention towards rainy season complaints & how to manage it with Homoeopathy through Genus Epidemics concept by Dr. Hahnemann.  

Common health problems in monsoon

Cold and cough:  Sneezing, runny nose, headache, and sore throat are few of the common symptoms which can affect any age group during monsoon.

Typhoid: One of the epidemics during monsoon due to contaminated food and water with bacteria.  In typhoid fever, the most common symptom of this disease is prolonged fever, severe pain in the abdomen with diarrhea/ constipation and headache.

Malaria and Dengue: Malaria and Dengue are other common monsoon diseases due to mosquitoes. There is fever, bouts of shivering, headache, weakness, muscle pains, etc. in Dengue, there can be a characteristic skin rash.

Hepatitis A & E: Hepatitis is another common monsoon disease due to contaminated food and water which spread through fecal-oral route.

Fungal infections: Most common during the monsoons because of constant dampness. The moisture present in the environment helps the fungi to grow and thrive, mostly in skin folds such as the groins or between the toes.

Gastroenteritis: Infection of GI tract due to bacteria or virus brings on vomiting, stomach ache, diarrhea or dysentery.  Monsoon also brings diseases like conjunctivitis, tonsillitis, earache, pneumonia, diarrhea, dysentery, vomiting.   


HOMOEOPATHY stimulates the body’s self healing mechanism. It treats the man who has the disease and not just the disease unlike other health sciences.

Cold food is not only one which is kept in refrigerator but also food articles which are cold by nature like Curd  Dahi), Cucumber, Banana, even regular water in winter as it becomes cold. 

Rhus tox: It is the medicine for rainy season. If you get wet in rains or if you get exposed to damp wet weather but not actually got wet and if you catch cold and cough, RHUS TOX is the medicine to be thought of.

Here, Merc sol is a good remedy for the prevention and treatment of fungal infection. Ulcers – irregular spreading, shallow, bleeding, with cutting and proud flesh. Itching at night, moist eczema etc.
