These include prickly heat and heat rash, heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Prickly heat or heat rash is a painful condition that usually appears in the folds of the skin. It is a sign that the body is not dealing with the heat and is at greater risk for a heat stroke. Treatments include cool bathing, thorough drying and using a talc or other body powder. Heat exhaustion is a milder form of heat related illness that occurs because of a combination of high temperatures and inadequate re- placement of fluids. Symptoms include extreme weakness, nausea, headache, and the person may or may not vomit or faint. The skin is moist and cool and the body temperature is normal or only slightly high. To treat, rest in a cool shaded area and drink plenty of liquids. Check with your doctor especially if other health problems are present. Heat Stroke is the most serious heat related illness and is a medical emergency. The symptoms include a body temperature of over 105 degrees, dry red skin, confusion, irritability and coma. The onset may be very rapid, within minutes. Treatment includes calling 911 and try- ing to lower the body temperature rapidly by using a cold bath or wet towels. Keep the victim in a cool area. Preventative measures include: drinking plenty of fluids such as water and fruit juice to prevent dehydration; wearing loose fitting, lightweight and light colored clothing; protecting yourself from direct sunlight by wearing wide-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts, pants and sunglasses or by staying in shaded areas; being aware that alcohol can impair the body’s sweat mechanism, as can antihistamines taken for allergies and diuretics prescribed for high blood pressure; avoiding over exer- tion of yourself when outdoors. People who work outdoors should, if possible, take short breaks if they feel fatigued. Schedule physical activity during the cooler parts of the day.
