Common Ailments You Easily Catch In Autumn

Autumn is approaching and the weather gets awesome. The climate changes constantly in autumn. Changeability in the temperatures during daytime and night can cause few medical issues. It is important to take care of your health this autumn to avert certain diseases.

Here are the common ailments that you may easily get in autumn –
·         Sore Throat
In autumn, your immune system is often impaired, so you easily get a cold. Changeability in temperature with strong wind can allow the virus to reproduce. A little negligent in taking care of your health can reduce your resistance, making you prone to throat infection or sore throat. Along with sore throat, you may experience fever, swollen tonsils, headache and nausea.

·         Allergies
People easily catch allergies in autumn, just as in spring. With increased risk of allergies, you may be vulnerable to allergic asthma in autumn. During autumn, the trees and grasses secrete pollen, which is the triggering factor of allergies. Allergy symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, postnasal discharge, fever and cough. If you are allergic to pollen, avoid going outdoors or use a protective mask. You can ask your GP for more preventive measures.

·         Peptic Ulcers
Peptic ulcers may affect you at any time of the year. However, during autumn, your immune system is not strong enough to combat the bacteria that can cause peptic ulcers. Your digestive function is affected greatly, increasing the risk of gastric or duodenal ulcers. The symptoms of peptic ulcers are nausea, vomiting, anorexia and abdominal pain.

·         Conjunctivitis
Conjunctivitis, or pink eyes, is another common ailment that can occur in autumn. Your immune system is impaired and your resistance is declined during autumn, making your susceptible to viral infection. The body loses its ability to combat the virus or infection, so the virus easily attacks you. The symptoms of conjunctivitis are red or pink eyes, eye pain with swelling.

·         Heart Ailments

The chances of a cardiac arrest increase during autumn, particularly in people with history of heart disease. That’s because the weather changes suddenly and the body struggles to adapt the change in climate, which eventually overloads the cardiovascular system. If you have pre-existing cardiac illness, take utmost care during autumn.
