The onset of monsoon signifies a relief from the searing heat of summers. But along with those cold showers come a number of diseases, humidity and other seasonal changes which land up making us weak, vulnerable to a number of diseases and infections. With waters accumulated in different areas, mosquitos preparing a baring ground for a number of infections, it is important to ensure that you have a contingency plan.
