Medical conditions due to excessive heat exposure that should be avoided and treated urgently

Dear readers,
We have all been looking forward to the summer and its finally here! :)
I live in Nicosia, the capital Cyprus where the weather can reach up to 45°C; and even though i love the heat, such high temperatures are not to be disregarded.

Here is a reminder to do all of those things that we hear every summer... Drink loads of water, apply sunscreen and then apply again! Protect your eyes with shades, wear a hat, wear clothes that will protect from the sun....
