Prolonged exposure to the rays of a hot, summer sun may cause a heat-stroke. The self-cooling mechanism of the body (through evaporation of sweat from the skin) fails, giving rise to very high fever, hot and dry skin and rapid, bounding pulse. The victim is dizzy, nauseated, weak and, generally, has a headache. If not treated in time, vomiting, delirium, convulsions or unconsciousness may occur.
Even more important than homoeopathic remedies are the following first-aid measures:
Glonoine 30 is the homoeopathic remedy of choice for sunstroke. Give a dose every fifteen minutes until patient improves.
If the victim has not responded positively to cold applications mentioned above, Glonoine may be replaced by Belladona 30, a dose to be given every fifteen minutes, till improvement is seen.
