Additionally, maintaining proper hygiene practices, such as washing hands frequently, can minimize the risk of infections.
Apart from infectious diseases, the monsoon can also exacerbate respiratory issues like asthma and allergies. Understanding how to manage these conditions and creating a safe environment for your child at home can ease their discomfort during this season.
