Hajj Health Tips:
Health Tips to be followed during Hajj
=============================
Health Tips for Hajj and Umrah Pilgrims:
Pilgrims, when coming for Hajj or Umrah, are supposed to abide by a variety of health tips and guidelines, by following which they will be against infectious and communicable diseases, Allah willing.

Following are some of such tips:
========================
1. Hygiene and General Cleanliness Tips:
===============================
    Maintaining personal hygiene, bathing regularly, and washing hands well by using water and soap, or other disinfectants used for handwashing, especially after coughing and sneezing.

    Using handkerchiefs when coughing or sneezing by covering the nose and mouth, and then eliminating them in the trash. In case there are no handkerchiefs at hand, use the upper arms rather than hands.

    Using a face-mask, especially in crowded places, and changing it every now and then.

    In case there are no handkerchiefs at hand, use the upper arms, rather than hands, for covering the nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.

    Wash your hands well, using water and soap, or the hand-sterilizing gel, especially after bathing, after coughing and sneezing, before eating, and when coming back to your residence.

    Paying close attention to the oral and dental cleanliness.

    Eliminating wastes in the trash.

    Changing cloths with new ones every now and then.

    Paying close attention to the cleanliness of your residence, on a daily basis.

    Avoiding spitting on the floor, since it is a hazardous source of infection.

Even though handwashing is always necessary, it is even more necessary during Hajj.

Don’t spit on the floor. It is a hazardous source of infection transmission.

Face-masks are recommended at crowded and congested places, especially during circumambulation of the Ka’ba (Tawaf), stoning (Rajm), and walking between Safa and Marwa (Sa’i).

They should be changed regularly (every six hours), or when dirty, in accordance with the guidelines provided by the manufacturer, along with washing hands with water and soap when taking them off.

2. Shaving and Haircutting Tips:
=========================
When shaving or haircutting, be sure to follow certain health tips and instructions to protect yourself against such infectious diseases as hepatitis (B) and (C) and AIDS.

Such tips include:
=============
    Choose a suitable barber, and never go to street barbers.

    Once-use shavers are recommended. Keep away from all other kinds of shavers, including the ones which have their razors changed after every shave.

    Never share others with such personal tools as the brushes used to remove hair, sponges, etc.

    Ask the barber to wash his hands well (by using water and soap) before shaving or haircutting.

    Remember that using your own shavers, and not sharing others with theirs, is the best way to protect yourself against the infection of hepatitis (B) and (C), and maybe AIDS.

3. Protection Against Food Poisoning During Hajj:
======================================
    Wash fruits and vegetables well before eating.

    Verify of the expiry date when buying canned foods and drinks.

    Keep away from the uncovered food, since it is exposed to insects and pollution.

    Wash your hands well before and after preparing food.

    Wash your hands well before and after eating.

    Cooked food should be eaten immediately after cooking, and, when need be, it could be kept in the fridge.

    Avoid storing cooked food in buses for long when moving from on Hajj site to another. This is one of the major triggers of food poisoning during Hajj.

Remember that storing cooked food for more than two hours in the room/bus temperature may lead to the growing of bacteria causing food poisoning.

4. Tips for Protection Against Heat Exhaustion and Sun Strokes:
================================================
    Drink enough liquids (water, juices, etc.) regularly.

    Avoid exposure to the sun for long, and use an umbrella when necessary. Light colored umbrellas are recommended.

    Avoid making excessive effort, and keep to take sufficient sleep after performing each of the Hajj rituals, so as to restore your energy.

    Loose, light colored cloths are recommended. Don’t use heavy cloths.

Areas of Frequent Heat Injuries:
Heat injuries are frequent in these areas:
==============================
    Tawaf (circumambulation of the Ka’ba), especially at midday times.

    Sa’i (walking between Safa and Marwa), especially in cases of crowding and high temperature.

    Arafat at midday time.

    Mina (places of slaughtering the sacrificial animals and stoning), due to the long distance and congestion.

On the onset of the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion or sun strokes (high body temperature, headache, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, thirst, and/or cramping of the abdominal and leg muscles), you should:
– Getting away from the sunny to a shady place.
– Cooling the body by cold water.
– Taking enough sleep.
– Taking antipyretics and painkillers when necessary.
– Heading for the nearest health centers in severe cases.

5. Tips for Patients with Chronic Diseases:
===============================
    Consult your doctor before setting out for Hajj, to assess your health situation.

    Take with you sufficient medications, and keep them properly.

    Take medicines on time.

    Adhere to the doctor’s instructions, such as following a certain diet.

    Put on the wrist strap (or the information card), which shows your name, age, disease, the kind of treatment, address and contact information.

    You’d better tell your fellow pilgrims about your disease and proper medications, so that they can help you when necessity be.

    Avoid making too much effort, and use the Hajj legal concessions (like assigning someone to do the stoning ritual on your behalf), when the conditions of such concessions are true.

    Head for the nearest health center when necessity be.

Second: Common Diseases during Hajj:
==============================
When performing the Hajj and Umrah rites, pilgrims are vulnerable to the diseases commonly associated with the Hajj season, including:
    Respiratory diseases.
    Gastrointestinal (digestive) diseases.
    Food poisoning.
    Dermatology (skin diseases)
    Dry eye.
    Sun strokes and heat exhaustion.

Respiratory Diseases:

Prevention and Reduction of Spread:
============================
    Putting on face-masks, especially in crowded and congested places, and changing them every now and then, in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

    Using handkerchiefs to cover the nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, and disposing them in the trash. In case there aren’t handkerchiefs at hand, use, instead, the upper arms rather than the hands.

    Don’t touch your eyes, nose or hands with the hands until after washing them well.

    Greeting others by shaking hands only.

    Don’t drink ice water.

    Keep away from the air conditioner when sweated.

On the incidence of any of these diseases, follow these tips:
===========================================
    Take enough sleep, and drink much liquids containing Vitamin C, such as lemonade and orange juice.

    Take antipyretics and painkillers.

    See a doctor on the onset of acute symptoms.

Tuberculosis and Hajj:

=================
Tuberculosis is one of the diseases that could be easily transmitted during Hajj, because of the overcrowding, and because some pilgrims hail from places stricken by this disease. It is transmitted through the droplets of coughing, sneezing or speaking.
Therefore, the Saudi Ministry of Health calls upon tuberculosis patients to put their Hajj off for later years, except in these cases:
    The result of spitting is negative, which indicates
