As we enter the mid-summer weeks, we have begun to notice that the heat and humidity have started to rise. Since more and more people are starting to get outdoors and enjoy the sunshine, we have to watch out for a few problems that can wreak havoc on our summer vacations. The first thing you should do is to always remember to drink plenty of water. Pay attention to the symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Some symptoms are: heavy sweating, pale or clammy skin, fainting, and vomiting. A heat stroke is a true medical emergency. A delay in treatment can be fatal. If you know someone who is elderly or fragile, check on them to make sure they stay cool. The elderly are much more likely to suffer from heat related illnesses. While you are outside, remember to wear sun block. Melanoma (an extremely aggressive form of skin cancer) is rapidly becoming the most common cancer in young adults. So remember to stay cool, stay covered, and love the outdoors.
