Doctor Sotonwa's Guide to Preventing Common Summer Health Concerns
TAMPA, Fla., April 25, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Living a healthy lifestyle and employing tactics to keep a body healthy is important all year round, but Dr. Sotonwa also believes that it is essential for individuals to pay extra attention to health risks that tend to pop up more frequently or become more threatening during certain parts of the year. During the summer, for example, many individuals spend more time outdoors or head to vacation destinations with weather and terrain that they are not used to. If individuals do not prepare for these summer activities properly, they may find themselves facing unexpected health risks. To ensure that everyone can have a fun, safe, and healthy summer, Dr. Kayode Sotonwa would like to share some helpful information on common summer health risks and how individuals can protect themselves against them.
Many individuals will probably be spending the warm season enjoying the great outdoors, but first they should prepare themselves for both increased activity and possible wilderness dangers. Those who are going to engage in physical activities like jogging, hiking, or biking, should make sure that they stretch and warm up to avoid over exerting themselves or straining and pulling their muscles. Individuals that plan on exploring new areas during their outdoor excursions should also make sure that they do research before hand to avoid unexpected hazards. Doctor Sotonwa recommends this precaution because it can help individuals avoid things like stinging or biting insects, challenging landscapes that may increase the risk of accidents and injuries, and plants such as poison sumac or poison ivy that can cause painful rashes.
Dr. Sotonwa shares that another serious summer hazard is the weather. When individuals head out in the summer heat they can face problems such as dehydration, heat rash, and sunburns, which in turn can lead to more serious conditions such as skin cancer. There are, thankfully, many way to prepare and avoid these types of problems. It is first essential that individuals stay hydrated, and bring plenty of water with them when they take part in summer activities. People should also apply sunscreen whenever they plan on being out in the sun for any length of time. Finally, the way that individuals dress can make a lot of difference to how they handle the heat. Loose and airy clothing will help prevent heat rash and chafing. Protective clothing with long sleeves and brimmed hats can also help individuals avoid sunburn.
With just a small amount of preparation, Dr. Sotonwa knows that every individual can appreciate their summers without facing the common health risks that are associated with the season.
