Health Precautions While Traveling To India
Travel fit. When you are traveling by road, or by air take all safety measures so as to avoid that running nose, shaky body high temperature, capricious hangovers etc. Ensure that you do not board on a tour even if there are a few before time signs of a sickness.
Cholera, Swine flu, dengue fever, dysentery, hepatitis, T.B, malaria, meningitis and typhoid are some of the risks which threaten you when you travel in India.
Tourists from the US, Canada, Australia or the United Kingdom do not necessitate any vaccination credential. Although usually, an International Health official document is not asked for by the immigration officials, its invariably better to carry it for the verification. Always remember to play safe and sound!
If you believe in taking safety measures, take all the immunization one needs. To keep away from malaria and dengue, take mosquito repugnant, nets and sprays. If you can tolerate the warmth, wear clothes that cover up nearly every part of the body.
The most excellent thumb rule is to be a cautious about foodstuff and water. Consumption of uncooked salads and fried foodstuff from a road-side seller should never be consumed. If the enticement is increasing, go to a dirt free restaurant that you can have faith in. Consume balanced and good nutritious meals. Keep taking those affable multi-vitamins.
Water has to be from a very neat and reliable clean source. If you are not aware from where the water comes from, request for a well-known brand of mineral water. All the time take a water bottle with you - this will keep you away from lack of fluids too. If you cannot arrange for branded water, use chlorine or iodine tablets in water. These destroy germs that are the root cause of water-borne diseases. Examine the directions vigilantly and do not exceed these.
Take a first aid kit with bonding agent bandages, thermometer, water-purification tablets, antibiotics, antibacterial creams and mosquito repellents.
If you by any chance fall sick, see the doctor immediately as the doctor are available on call in all the hotels and keep cool.
Sun and Heat Protection:
Southern part of India is HOT, particularly during the months of March, April, and May. The sun is very warm when youre so near to the equator. You can protect yourself in a wide variety of ways.
Look ahead to sweat a lot. Indians get over this by using talcum powder to soak up the sweat. Plan to pay for this when you arrive here.
