Health care tips for changing seasons to enjoy autumn healthy
It is autumn after all. It is supposed to be quite warm during the day, but it is chilly in the morning and evening due to the large daily temperature difference. If you are used to the long summer weather and fail to adapt to sudden changes in the weather, your body and mind balance is easy to break in an instant. Today, we are going to talk about the diseases of the changing seasons that you need to be aware of in order to enjoy autumn in a healthy way and how to manage your health during the changing seasons.
Top 4 seasonal diseases to watch out for
1. Colloquial, respiratory and allergic diseases
First, respiratory diseases are easy to occur during the changing seasons.
During the changing seasons of autumn, the humidity drops sharply, creating an environment where viruses can easily penetrate and reproduce.
A cold caused by a virus can heal naturally, but it can develop into pneumonia, bronchitis, or otitis media, so it is important to visit a hospital at an early stage.
Dry weather can also cause allergic diseases. Insects and dust that breed in summer float in the air and cause allergic diseases such as rhinitis, conjunctivitis, and asthma. Carpets and curtains are more likely to breed house dust mites, so it is recommended to wash them regularly or avoid using them if possible.
2. Skin disease caused by lost moisture
When the skin loses moisture, it loses elasticity and can cause skin diseases. Atopic dermatitis may be more severe. The skin is itchy and may blister or scab when scratching. While drinking enough water, apply a moisturizer and restore your circadian rhythm through rest and regular living to boost your immunity.
3. Cardiovascular disease caused by sudden temperature change
If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or hyperlipidemia on a regular basis, you should pay more attention to health management during the changing seasons. This is because the sudden change in temperature causes the blood vessels to constrict and block the flow of blood. On days when there is a big difference in temperature, you must bring a jacket to keep your body temperature. Also, blood pressure can vary greatly depending on the temperature difference between indoors and outdoors, so as the weather gets colder, always pay attention to maintaining proper body temperature wherever you are.
4. Acute febrile and hemorrhagic disease that can be caught outdoors
There are many people who do outdoor activities during the changing seasons of autumn when the heat has receded. If you sit on the lawn for a long time while enjoying music festivals, golf, or mountain climbing, the tick larvae may irritate your skin and cause high fever and headaches, and in severe cases you may even lose consciousness. It is recommended not to lie on the lawn or to lay clothes on the floor.
