However, it can be treated by drinking fluids and sitting in a cool area.

Mosquitoes increase in the environment during summers and there are many diseases which are spread due to mosquito bites. As we keep our windows open in summers, mosquitoes tend to come inside the house also. However, people can employ many methods to keep them outside the house such as using mosquito repellents or coils. There are some natural methods as well as burning cinnamon or using lemon eucalyptus oil as a mosquito repellent. You can also apply mosquito repellent cream on your body while going out. Additionally, make sure that water doesn’t get collected anywhere as it can be a breeding base for mosquitoes.

10Dry and irritated skin

Skin gets dry due to the hot, humid and dry air and it can result in itching, cracks and change in color. This happens mostly to those who spend maximum time in the sun, air conditioner or pool. To prevent skin from dryness, use moisturizer gels instead of regular soaps and apply sunscreen before going out of the home and keep it with you as well so that you can apply it at regular intervals. Take bath with warm or lukewarm water to get relief.
