Home remedies for sunstroke:

 

Rest in a cool place:

It's best to get into an air-conditioned building, but at least find a shady place or sit in front of a fan, resting on your back with your legs elevated above the level of your heart.

 

Drink cold liquids:

Stick to water or natural drinks, don't drink any alcoholic drinks.


Compresses:

Apply washcloths soaked in cold water to your skin.

 

Loosen clothes:

Remove any unnecessary clothing and make sure your clothing is lightweight. If you do not begin to feel better within one hour of using these remedial measures, seek urgent medical attention.

 


Cooling blankets and ice packs:

Cooling blankets are wrapped with heat stroke. Ice packs are placed in areas where large veins are close to the surface of the skin, such as the groin, armpit, neck and back. This ensures that the blood temperature drops quickly.

Muscle relaxants:

Medicines such as benzodiazepines may be given if the body temperature has not decreased.
