The time is here again when we sweat a lot and wait desperately for rains to arrive. And the Sun seems to bite us to eat skin and eyes despite a straw hat and dark glasses. Besides making us feel tired and zapped, it can even be downright harmful by increasing the risk of heat stroke.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS?
Sunstroke is a form of hyperthermia or heat-related illness where the body’s temperature rises too high. The body loses its ability to cool itself and overheats. High humidity and heat wave can also result in sunstroke. Untreated sunstroke can cause damage to the brain, heart, kidneys, and muscles. In severe cases, delay in treatment increases the risk of serious complications or even death. In severe hyperthermia, body temperature rises up to 104 F (40 C) or higher. Another cause of heat stroke is dehydration. A dehydrated person may not be able to sweat fast enough.
Excess exposure to sun , laborious activity in the hot sun or severe dehydration
A painful headache, increase in pulse rate, high body temperature, dryness in the mouth, dehydration, muscle cramp and weakness, red, hot, and dry skin, nausea and vomiting.
