Having fun can bring some hazards. Do you know how to keep your loved one safe this summer? Be informed about those hazards that can come from too much sun. Below are some great tips for more enjoyment without experiencing the hazards that Summer weekends can bring.
First know what the days temperatures will be and avoid being outside for prolonged periods of time during the hottest part of the day which is usually between 1 and 4 pm. Stay hydrated by drinking water often, enough so that you have to pee at least every 2 hours. Too much sun excitement during these times of day, even if it is overcast, can bring on mild symptoms of nausea, dizziness, headaches and confusion. If any of these symptoms are experienced, drink fluids, seek shade and apply a cool wet towel to the back of your neck. For more severe symptoms such as joint aches, throbbing headache, chills, and weakness along with (no body moisture to sweat) and a weak pulse. Get inside if possible and drink fluids until you pee and begin to sweat again. Heat stroke involves all of these symptoms plus an internal temperature of 103 or more and can be fatal. Other signs of heat stroke can be nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and difficulty breathing. To get the core body temp down use ice packs under the arm pits and at the groin and seek medical attention.

Sun burns are all too common during the summer and Many people think that a base tan will protect them from both sunburns and skin cancer but that is just not true. Color change brought on by a base tan indicates your skin has produced some melanin but it does not protect you from the UV radiation that is most responsible for sunburn. Practicing good sun protection is key to avoiding sun burn so apply and re apply lotion with at least an SPF of 30 is essential to limit the damage that the sun can have on the skin.
In a quote from Dr. Mc Stay, “Having a sunburn is uncomfortable and painful,” Mc Stay said. “And the chronic risk of sun exposure and skin cancer is something to think about every day.” In 2013, there were nearly 34,000 emergency room visits in the U.S. due to serious sunburns, according to recent research in Dermatology. Go to the doctor if your sunburn results in blistering or is accompanied by nausea, confusion, headache, extreme pain or chills. You should also head to the doctor if at-home remedies such as applying aloe Vera or taking a pain reliever like ibuprofen does not help after a couple of days. But even if you can take care of your burn at home, it’s an uncomfortable mishap that’s easy to avoid.
We hope this article helps to keep you informed when out in the sun having fun. After all the weekend is here and good times should be fun without the risk.
