Heat stroke

A severe form of hyperthermia, Heat stroke occurs when the human body absorbs more heat than it can dissipate.

Heat cramps

Muscle pains or spasms usually occur in the abdomen, arms or legs. Spasms usually occur in coordination with strenuous physical activity.

Skin care: Sun tan

Sun tan makes your skin darker.
