Summers can be fun but sometimes a headache, here are the commonly caused summer problems and their solutions! 

 1. Dehydration

When the water content in your body drops down, you get dehydrated. Summer renders you to sweat a lot. Sweat and fluid loss through urination means that your body does not have enough water to maintain itself. You can tell you are on the brink of dehydration if you-

  • Feeling of being thirsty all the time.

  • Are you frequently urinating and your urine is dark-hued.

  • Feel disoriented

  • Experience headaches

To get rid of these symptoms from seeping in, all you need to do is have plenty of water at regular intervals. You can also have green coconut water or “chhanch”. Do not forget to grab as many watery fruits as you can. Having fruits like watermelons, grapes, papayas or mangoes can restock your body’s water supply and make you feel hydrated.

 2. Sun Stroke

If the temperature aviates beyond 40 degrees, you need to be careful of the threat of sunstroke. This is actually classified as a health emergency. Exposure to heat for a long span of time in confluence with dehydration shambles with the body’s ability to regulate internal temperature. 

Here are the symptoms of sunstroke below-

  • Piercing headache

  • Dizziness

  • Muscle cramps

  • Seizures

  • Elevated heart rate

To prevent sunstroke, drink plenty of fluids, unfold your umbrella when you go outside, do not go out between 12 noon and 3 PM and wear comfortable cotton clothing. 

 3. Hay Fever

Hay fever is a kind of allergy. It is especially prominent in early summer when flowers bloom and the pollen comes in contact with your body.

Some indicators of hay fever are-

  • Congested nose and watering eyes.

  • Coughing and sneezing.

  • Fatigue and fever.

You can reduce your exposure to allergens if you wear a pollution mask. If you are prone to allergies, consult with your doctor, some medicines can ease the symptoms.

 4. Food Poisoning

Summer is the time when several dangerous microorganisms such as Salmonella and Clostridium thrive. And they multiply in food. Unhealthy ways of cooking and preserving food can lead to food poisoning. The signs of food poisoning are-

  • Stomach cramp

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Diarrhoea

  • Fever

You can immunize yourself against food poisoning if you avoid undercooked meat, raw vegetables, fish that has not been cooked at high temperature and fast food.

5. Sunburns

When you expose yourself to the sun for an extended duration, the harmful ultraviolet rays (UVA, UVB) can penetrate your delicate skin leading to a condition called sunburn. This condition is known to be as itchy, dry and red skin that can be chaperoned by nausea, fever or chills. In cases where the burns are severe, there may be blisters and the skin may peel once the condition subsides. Every whether is meant to be the best of itself, and preventing yourself from the cons of summers is in your hands.
