5. Heatstroke & dehydration
With the warm weather, it’s easy to become overheated or dehydrated. Heatstroke is most common in the summer, according to the Mayo Clinic, and is the most serious form of heat injury. It occurs when your body temperature rises to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, and it requires emergency treatment. Here are 10 things to know about heatstroke.
Avoiding dehydration can be as simple as bringing a water bottle outside with you in the summer. Dehydration occurs when you use or lose more fluids than you take in. Symptoms can include thirst but may also include a dry mouth and tongue and no tears when crying in children, as well as fatigue, dizziness or less-frequent urination in adults.
