- Sunburn - burns occur when your skin is exposed to UV light, directly or indirectly. You can experience a severe sunburn after just a short period outdoors — and people with fair skin should use extra caution.
- Heat Rash – heat rashes can affect adults in hot, humid weather. They occur when blocked pores trap perspiration under your skin.
- Heat Stroke - heat exhaustion, which results from prolonged exposure to hot temperatures. Symptoms include pale, ashen or flushed skin, headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness and exhaustion.
- Swimmer’s ear - This infection in the outer ear canal is often brought on by water that stays in your ear after swimming. This creates a moist environment that aids bacterial growth.
Have fun this summer but remember to reapply sunblock often, hydrate, and get out of the sun if you feel dizzy.
