The Hot and Cool Things About Summer

Summer’s here and that’s a good thing! We all look forward to saying “good-bye” to the cold and “hello” to the cozy warmth of summer. With all the good things about summer, there are some things that we need to be aware of, such as dehydration and heat rash.


Dehydration is a significant loss of fluid in your body. Some of the symptoms of dehydration are:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Extreme fussiness or sleepiness in infants and children; irritability and confusion in adults
  • Very dry mouth, skin and mucous membranes
  • Little or no urination — any urine that is produced will be darker than normal.
  • Sunken eyes.
