Heatstroke may appear similar to heat exhaustion, but the skin may be dry with no sweating and the person’s mental condition worsens. They may stagger, appear confused, fit, collapse and become unconscious.
Warning signs of heatstroke vary, but may include:
Very high body temperature
Red, hot, dry skin (no sweating)
Dry swollen tongue
Dizziness, confusion, nausea
The best defense against any heat-related illness is prevention. If you take precautions and know the warning signs, you generally can prevent heat stoke. Keep a close watch on the elderly and infants, people on certain medications, athletes and outdoor workers. #heatstroke #heatindex #headache #stroke #neurologist #manila #philippines #winnielimkhoo
