Heat and dehydration: symptoms, causes, and treatment

Fun in the sun can turn out to be not so fun if heat leaves you or your little one dehydrated. In the summer, or when you are travelling to hot places, the heat can lead to perspiration, and perspiration can cause dehydration, which may make you or your little one feel ill. But there’s something everyone can do to feel better fast when dealing with heat exhaustion — rehydrate with Pedialyte®.

How heat can lead to dehydration

Pedialyte® can help with causes of dehydration like excessive sweating

Dehydration often occurs in hot weather because the higher your or your little one’s body temperature gets, the more you perspire or sweat. Sweat is your body’s natural cooling mechanism, but if you sweat a lot, you can lose enough fluids and electrolytes to leave you dehydrated. So, if you or your child is feeling tired, have headache-like symptoms, or are experiencing other symptoms of dehydration, rehydrate with Pedialyte® and feel better fast to avoid any symptoms of heat stroke.

Heat exhaustion

Pedialyte® can help with causes of dehydration like heat exhaustion

It’s really important to keep yourself and your kid hydrated in the heat because dehydration can contribute to a more serious condition — heat exhaustion.

Common heat exhaustion symptoms:

  • Rapid pulse
  • Muscle or stomach cramps
  • Excessive sweating
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Clammy and pale skin
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fainting

Be sure to get to a cooler location, rest, and rehydrate if you or your little one starts to experience any of these symptoms of heat exhaustion. Left untreated, heat exhaustion can become heat stroke, a much more serious condition that may require hospitalization.

For over 50 years, Pedialyte® has helped people hydrate with the optimal balance of sugar and electrolytes for fast rehydration. Pedialyte® is the #1 brand recommended by GPs and pediatricians.

Our four different types of Pedialyte® Products come in a variety of flavours. Find your or your little one's favourites
