Fever And Flu When Exposed To The Sun?
Good morning, I always have a fever and flu after being exposed to hot air / blazing sun, for example after I drive at 12 noon when I arrive at the destination, I get dizzy, flu and fever. But I rarely have a fever and flu when it gets rained on or exposed to other cold air. Is that normal? Or is it an indication of something else? Thank you
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In general, flu and fever symptoms are more associated with cold air than hot air. But this condition can indeed be experienced by those who are exposed to hot air, with other mechanisms, such as hot air causing you to become dehydrated or dehydrated. Among the symptoms of lack of fluids are dizziness, and your immune system will go down so it is more susceptible to colds.
Another possibility, not only causes dehydration, excessive heat exposure can also cause a person to experience a heat stroke or heat stroke. This makes a person experience dizziness, throbbing headaches, nausea, vomiting, even convulsions and fainting. In addition, excess thyroid hormone, low blood sugar levels following exposure to heat, and fatigue can also trigger the appearance of symptoms that you feel.
So our advice to you, try to prepare yourself when going on a trip through hot weather using thin clothing, consuming lots of water before the trip and bring water or other cold drinks to drink at any time, make sure you have eaten beforehand , and take care of your health with regular breaks and regular exercise.
If your condition does not improve, you should check with your doctor. Other information is needed such as blood pressure, heart rate, and maybe a blood test to better determine your condition. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection. So, hopefully answering your question.
