Iam in chennai. I have a doubt whether tying a stole to cover face from dust is good or bad. I feel very hot once i tie the stole but people use to do it while driving and walking. Is it good or bad.

Hi papu_av

Thanks for your post!

Wearing scarves or stoles over the face can help with the inhalation of dust but you're right, it's not very comfortable in the heat.

Rather than a stole, can you wear a surgical mask when it's really dusty. These are far more comfortable and won't make you feel as warm.

As I am sure you know, dust gets everywhere! For more tips on dealing with dust - read here: http://www.empowher.com/community/ask/natural-remedies-dust-allergies-are

I'm sure you can find surgical masks (or painter's masks) at drugs stores or hardware stores. I hope they work for you.
