Occasionally, we catch a summer cold that we don‘t recognize. This cold may adversely affect your health harsher than a slight cold. Investigate why we may catch the summer cold, why it is nastier than a usual cold and how we can prevent it.
▶Why do we catch the summer cold?
1. There is a big temperature difference during the change of seasons so it is difficult to take care of our health.
2. As turning on your air-conditioner in a hot afternoon, you make your surrounding too cool. Under this condition, you are too weak to combat viruses.
▶Why is it nastier?
Symptoms of the summer cold include a high fever, a cough, and a variety of complications. In addition, irregular menstruation suddenly occurs in the case of women.

• It is best to avoid places with many people.
• Make it a habit to wash your hands thoroughly.
• Make sure indoor air is dry by using a humidifier, which protects your lungs.
