Hi, how are you ?


 It was hard for us to keep ourselves well in July because it was unexpected long rainy season and was a lot of cloudy days which was influenced by typhoon. Babies easily get sick when cloudy days continue for 3 or 4 days, also mothers get problems for housekeeping.  
 This climate has an effect for us to get fever because we don't get used to high temperature physically. We can't make to cool our body off when we are not ready to sweat, consequently we might get dehydration finally. Specially, it's dangerous when infants and senior citizens don't notice about they need to drink water, and it happens they loose their consciousness and gradually get sick. To avoid that it need to get appropriate salt, sugar and water. Also you have to consider about taking nourishment when you eat even if you don't have an appetite because of heat.
 Hand foot and mouth disease is epidemic in all Japan. Though this isn't much serious illness , it seems they have the confusion at school and at kindergarten. Patients are not allowed attending school or kindergarten when they have a fever and have no appetite, but they can do that when they eat about 2/3 of usual amount and have no fever. Hand foot and mouth disease is different infectious disease from influenza, from mumps and from chickenpox. On the other hand, depending on the type of virus you fall into the serious condition, so, I recommend you take your doctor's check-up to get his advice.
 However you might feel this summer is shorter than usual years because of a long rainy season, now you can try anything which you can't do usually. So let’s do it literally.  


When you return to your home,make gargling and washing hands into your habit to avoid infectious disease.
