People who live in the hottest parts of the planet or are experiencing the hottest weather may experience heat exhaustion. Heat exhaustion is one of three heat-related syndromes that are caused by exposure to high temperatures and high humidity. This condition causes the body to overheat and show the following symptoms:

  • Heavy sweating
  • Rapid pulse
  • Dizziness
  • Faintness
  • Fatigue
  • Low blood pressure
  • Muscle cramps

Heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke, the most serious heat-related illness if left untreated. Heat exhaustion can be prevented with healthy practices including:

  • Drinking water regularly
  • Taking cool baths
  • Wearing light-colored and loose clothes
  • Wearing sunscreen
  • Avoiding lengthy exposure to the sun between 11 am to 3 pm

With high humidity and strenuous physical activity, you may get heat exhaustion a lot faster than those at rest since your sweat can’t evaporate easily and your body will have difficulty cooling itself. Hence, even though you have high heat tolerance, it’s still best to protect yourself from the heat and avoid too much exposure to the sun, especially when it’s at its highest point in the sky.
