Holi, the festival of colours, brings with itself the coolness of spring and many joys. But sometimes we go overboard in celebrating the festival and end up harming ourselves in some way or the other. And mostly, people tend to ignore these thinking that it will heal with time. That’s where they go wrong.
Infections which seem to be minor at first can worsen if not taken care of. So, if you are suffering from any colour related to other infections, you can try the following:
Antiseptic : You should always make it a point to take a bath immediately after playing with colours. Even if you didn’t, you should now do it for a week after Holi if there are still remnants of colours in your body parts. Just add a cap of antiseptic to your bucket of water and take bath.
Cuts and Cracks: If you had cuts and cracks in your body and colour made its way through it during playing Holi, you should take extra care of it. Clean your wound with antiseptic liquid regularly, and apply soothing creams like Boroline. If the irritation persists, please consult a Doctor to avoid increasing the infection.
Skin irritation: Colour manufacturing isn’t always the same. It is possible that the colour that was used on you had some chemicals or products not suitable to your skin. Going with home-based treatments can form further irritation as you don’t know what might react further with it. Visit your nearest hospital for consultation in that case.
Genitals: Genitals are pretty sensitive part of our bodies. As we all know Holi is enthusiastically played in our country, colour, mostly in water form, might make way to your genitals when you are colours or water buckets are thrown on you. If you feel any irritation around your genitals, visit a gynaecologist immediately for get proper line of treatment. (If it is out of harassment during Holi, you must report it to concerned authorities as well)
