Tips to Avoid Heat-Related Issues This Summer From The Medical Professionals at MedRite Urgent Care, Manhattan, New York

Summertime provides the perfect opportunity to get outdoors and go visit fun and relaxing places. But whether you’re heading to the beach or some other warm weather destination for a summer vacation, the medical professionals at MedRite Urgent Care want to help you avoid heat-related issues that could not only put a damper in your plans, but also cause you serious physical harm.

So here a few of the most common summertime illnesses and how to avoid them, with tips to help you enjoy a happy and healthy summer from New York’s premiere urgent care center:

  1. Sunburn:
    The sun’s UV rays are strongest during mid-day between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., so be sure to avoid prolonged sun exposure during these hours. For sunscreen, always use SPF 30 or higher and reapply it every two hours. A palm-full of sunscreen should be enough to cover the arms, legs, neck and face of the average adult.
  2. Dehydration: It’s important to ensure you’re ingesting enough fluids, especially when you’re in hot weather situations. Don’t just wait until you’re thirsty to drink – drink plenty of water before, during and after activities. To guard against heat exhaustion, limit activities in the hot sun to 15 to 20 minutes at a time.
  3. Heatstroke: While the elderly are at greatest risk for heatstroke, infants and children are also at risk, which is why it's especially important to never leave a child unattended in a locked car. Infants and young children can suffer a heat-related illness very quickly, since the indoor temperature of a locked car can rise to dangerous levels even in moderate weather.

The medical professionals at MedRite Urgent Care Center in NYC want to ensure that heat-related issues don’t ruin the joy of summer for you.
