Summer travel is a fun way to make the most out of your school break. However, no one likes to get sick when they’re having fun but it does happen. Another reason why it’s important that you maintain your ISO insurance while you’re in the US for summer break. Take a look at some of the common summer illnesses that can happen to you and how you can get help.
Protect your gut: Travelling can take you on to a taste bud adventure which increases the chances of you suffering from food poisoning. Ensure that your food is prepared and cooked properly in order to decrease the chances of becoming sick.
Ears are important: A good swim is a sure way to cool down during the summer heat. However, the more you swim, the likely you are to get an infection in your outer ear canal also known as Swimmer’s Ear. Investing in ear plugs or carefully drying your ears after a swim are two ways to protect yourself from this.
Cool for the summer: Summer equals high temperature and this can lead to hyperthermia (heat stroke). If you experience very high body temperature, headache, nausea, dizziness, heavy sweating, muscle cramps and fatigue then you may be suffering hypothermia. Ensure you stay hydrated during the day, wear lightweight, light-colored loose clothing, stay in an air conditioned area and avoid vigorous outside work during 10 a.m. and 4 p.m..
