SURVIVING THE SUMMER HEAT
Summer heat can be more than uncomfortable, bringing with it the threat of dehydration, heat stroke, heat exhaustion, sunburn, heat rash and more. And, high temperatures can be scary for young children, the elderly, and people with chronic health conditions.
Heat stroke is a serious medical emergency that must be treated quickly by a trained professional. Until help arrives, cool the person down by placing ice on the neck, armpits and groin. If the person is awake and able to swallow, give him or her fluids.
Tips for Staying Cool
• Drink plenty of water – In hot weather, drink enough to quench your thirst. The average adult needs eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day – more during heat spells.
• Dress for the weather –
When outside, wear lightweight clothing made of natural fabrics and a well-ventilated hat.
• Stay inside if possible – Do errands and outside chores early or late in the day.
• Eat light – Replace heavy or hot meals with lighter, refreshing foods.
• Think cool! Take a cool shower or apply a cold compress to your pulse points. Or, try spending time indoors at an air-conditioned mall or movie theater
Spring is a beautiful time of year — unless you have seasonal allergies. Then, all those buds and blooms just mean sneezes, sniffles, and itchy eyes.
Depending on the severity of your allergies, you may rely on over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, or even allergy shots to keep your allergic reactions in check. But you can minimize your need for these medications by learning what triggers your allergies, and doing your best to avoid those triggers.
