Due to the warm, damp and humid climate during Monsoon; vector-borne, fungal, allergies and parasitic
skin infections become very common. The worst hit are the children who are very vulnerable to such skin infections.
During monsoon, stepping out becomes a huge problem as your child's feet are exposed
to filth and mud all the time, thereby making the feet one of the easiest targets for infections.
Here are the 6 basic tips to help your child enjoy the monsoons without the related skin hazards !
- Keep your child's skin dry. Change wet clothes as soon as possible.
Washing your child immediately upon return from school and after playing with the safe and effective
Suthol antiseptic skin liquid is crucial. This simple precaution will go a long way in eliminating the
ill-effects of any contact with infected material including skin to skin contact and contact with contaminated water.
Ensure that your child's nails are kept trimmed and short during the monsoon season. Long nails attract
muck and bacteria thereby leading to fungal infection.
Make your child wear cotton clothes during daytime. Drinking 8-10 glasses of pure,
filtered water daily to avoid dehydration, is a must, say the skin experts.
Your child needs to wear open and simple footwear like slippers and filp flops which lets the feet breathe.
Make it a point to wash your child's feet with clean water mixed with Suthol antiseptic skin liquid on returning home.
Suthol's effective antiseptic ingredients of Chlorhexidine, Cetrimide and Neem ensure that your child is kept safe from foot infections.
