Sunburn and sunstroke are both related to excessive exposure to the sun, but they are different conditions with varying symptoms and severity.
Sunburn: It occurs when the skin is overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. UV radiation damages the skin cells, leading to red, inflamed skin. Common symptoms of sunburn include redness, pain, tenderness, swelling, and, in more severe cases, blisters. Sunburn can range from mild to severe, and severe sunburn can cause fever, chills, and weakness.
Sunstroke (Heatstroke): Sunstroke, or heatstroke, is a serious condition that happens when the body overheats due to prolonged exposure to high temperatures or from physical activity in hot weather. While sunburn affects the skin, heatstroke affects the entire body’s temperature regulation system. Symptoms of heatstroke include a very high body temperature (often above 104°F or 40°C), hot and dry skin (with no sweating), a rapid pulse, throbbing headache, dizziness, nausea, confusion, and even loss of consciousness. Heatstroke is a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment.
Both sunburn and sunstroke can be prevented by taking certain precautions:
- Use sunscreen with a high SPF to protect your skin from UV radiation.
- Wear appropriate clothing that covers your skin.
- Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, especially during peak hours (usually between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.).
- Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, particularly water.
- Take breaks in the shade to cool down when spending time in hot weather.
If you or someone else shows symptoms of severe sunburn or heatstroke, it’s essential to seek medical attention, especially in the case of heatstroke, which can be life-threatening if not treated promptly.
Walking in summer causes headache, dizziness, nausea, excessive thirst and body ache. The pulse becomes fast but weak, breathing becomes rapid, skin becomes dry, pupils of the eyes dilate, and in the severity of the disease the eyes become red. Fever ranges from 99.1 to 104.7 degrees Fahrenheit and in severe cases it can reach up to 107.2 Fahrenheit (43 degrees Centigrade) leading to death. Yellow or blue face and completely dry skin are symptoms of the fact that the blood and body fluids have become dry due to heat. Excessive increase in temperature is a danger symptom. Many times, due to brain damage due to high fever, the patient may go mad and even become unconscious and die within a few minutes.
