At this time, the environmental temperature ranges between 30 and 42 degrees Celsius in Querétaro, which causes an increased risk of suffering from diseases such as: diarrhea, heat stroke, dehydration and sunburn.
For this reason we share some recommendations against extreme heat, which help to avoid heat stroke, sunburn and dehydration:
- Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun’s rays
- Wear cool, light-colored clothing
- Increase fluid intake
- Do not exercise or outdoor activities between 11 and 15 hours
- Use hats, umbrellas and sunglasses
- Keep in cool places
- Cover windows that receive sunlight by placing blinds, curtains, or newspapers, which helps reduce up to 80 percent of the heat inside the house.
Likewise, you should avoid staying and not allow others to remain, inside a vehicle that is under the sun, parked or closed for long periods of time.
In case the lips and skin are dry, request Life Serum Oral for free in any unit of the health sector; not self-medicate, better go for medical attention.
Important to apply sunscreen cream
When leaving, it is necessary to always apply a cream with a broad spectrum sunscreen, with a protection factor equal to or greater than 30, which must be applied to the exposed parts of the body and repeat the application every two hours, or after working , swimming, playing or exercising outdoors. Sunscreen cream is not used to prolong sun exposure.
Be careful with your food
Heat accelerates the decomposition of poorly stored food that, when consumed, can cause diarrhea. Another factor causing this condition is the consumption of raw, poorly washed or poorly cooked foods, so it is important that when refrigerating foods, separate raw foods (especially meat and fish) from those that are already cooked and ready to eat.
All dairy products should be kept refrigerated; Do not leave foods that are already prepared, at room temperature for more than two hours, they should be kept covered and refrigerated; boil food in refrigeration before consuming; eat cooked and hot prepared foods at the time of serving.
Serving minors and older adults
Girls and boys under the age of six, the elderly and the sick are more likely to become dehydrated when suffering from diarrheal disease. The symptoms of dehydration are: dry mouth, lethargy, absence of tears, sunken eyes, absence or decrease of urine.
Other ways to prevent acute diarrheal disease are:
- Wash your hands with soap and water, or use disinfectant such as gel alcohol before eating, after using the bathroom, changing diapers, and before preparing food.
- Boiled, disinfected (with chlorine or colloidal silver) or bottled water should be used to drink and prepare food.
- Wash with soap and water, or disinfect all fruits and vegetables.
