Monsoon related skin and hair problems

It’s the monsoon season and your heart may seem up and about to enjoy the joyful showers but your skin and hair may be disagreeing with you. This is that time of the year for your skin when it may become more prone to infections. There are 20% more chances of you getting skin-related problems this monsoon. The combination of humidity and heat can lead to multiple skin, hair and scalp problems; it contributes to various infections caused by fungus and virus. Allergies become hyperactive during this time. The reason for this being the cold and damp environment which is perfect for parasites and fungus to grow and multiply. The humidity lowers our  immunity which lowers our body’s capability to fight against these parasites and bacterias.

Problems faced:


Monsoon weather effects both oily and dry skin types.

The sebaceous glands, oil secreting gland, becomes hyperactive during the rainy weather. This makes skin more oily which leads to accumulation of bacterial growth and dust. This makes the oily skin more prone to blackheads, whiteheads and acne during rains. Dry skin during monsoon loses its capability to self repair itself. This is due to lack  of moisture content in the skin which removes its essential oils and vitamins.

One must always consult a dermatologist to get proper skin care treatments for monsoon. The best dermatologists understands your skin type and treats your problem accordingly.


Constant sweating due to the humidity can aggravate oily scalp dandruff.  Fungus, sebum and irritation of the scalp increases due to the climate changes. These three factors combined together give rise to dandruff. Oily scalp gets more prone to fungal infections during monsoon, therefore oily scalp goes through flakey scalp and dandruff.

Dandruff can be treated by an expert dermatologist. If your dandruff is troubling you during monsoon, consult a treatment plan from a dermatologist.

Constant drying of sweat on scalp eliminates the natural oils of the scalp, increasing the dryness of the dry scalp. Hair requires its essential and natural oil to stay healthy, which the hair loses during monsoon. This makes it more frizzy and unhealthy, which leads to excessive hair fall.

PRP for hair fall is one of the best ways to completely put a stop to your hair fall problem. Consult the best dermatologists when trying to solve your hair problems.


Many people, during monsoon, complain about skin rashes and itchiness. This is usually due to either allergies or fungal/bacterial infections which are on a rise during this wet season.

Damp and moist skin becomes home ground for bacteria. They are more active in this skin environment and attacks the skin. This leads to infections like dermatitis, eczema and nail fungal infections during monsoon season.

Allergies like impetigo, tinea capitis and folliculitis are seen on a rise during the rainy season.
