In the older days of summer, it was a common misconception that obtaining the first sunburn of the season would help you tan.
That was Dr. Matthew L. Perkins with Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital. He said you always need to protect your skin from the sun.
Another summer concern is a heat stroke...
Again, that was Dr. Perkins with Saint Thomas.
Common Signs of a Heatstroke:
• Throbbing headache
• Dizziness and light-headedness
• Lack of sweating despite the heat
• Red, hot, and dry skin
• Muscle weakness or cramps
• Nausea and vomiting
• Rapid heartbeat, which may be either strong or weak
• Rapid, shallow breathing
• Behavioral changes such as confusion, disorientation, or staggering
