Below, we are mentioning some diseases that can make your life miserable and despondent in the summer if you don’t know the proper remedies.
1. Heat stroke: Heat stroke is a common summer disease which can put your life in danger. Fainting is the first sign of heat stroke though you may encounter with some other symptoms like vomiting, staggering, headaches, high body temperature, and nausea. If you want to control heat stroke, then don’t go outside between 11 a.m to 4 p .m and in case, if you need to go outside, then wear full sleeves and cover your face with a stole or shawl. Don’t forget to carry a water bottle while going outside.
2. Sunburn: Due to egregious climate and scorching heat in summer, you may face sunburns which can hinder all your daily activities. The prime reason behind sunburn is due to the overexposure of ultraviolet radiations which can damage your skin. So, before going outside, try to rub sunscreens or lotions with SPF on your skin.
3. Prickly heat: you may often notice some rashes (with itching sometimes) on your skin due to the excessive humidity and temperature. Try to use prickly heat powders on the affected areas. Drink a plenty of water, fruit juices to remain hydrated and try to stay in cool places as much as possible.
4. Food poisoning or diarrhea: Food poisoning is another common disease in summer. Because due to extreme heat often vegetables and fruits get spoiled quickly. Always try to put the extra food into the refrigerator and wash fruits and vegetables before and after chopping in order to prevent food poisoning or diarrhea.
5. Jaundice: Jaundice basically develops due to the intake of unhygienic and germ-infested water and food items. In summer, try to use boiled water and eat lighter foods to avoid jaundice.
