The last thing you want is to get sick right before – or during – your summer holiday. I’m sure you already have an incredible holiday plan in place, with exotic beaches, great food, and awesome parties waiting to be enjoyed. Summer is a great season for a lot of fun indeed and getting sick before or during summer can ruin the excitement.
Even small health issues and minor injuries can alter your holiday plan altogether. That is why in this article, we are going to take a look at the potential problems you may face and how you can stop them from ruining your summer. Let’s get started, shall we?
Getting too excited and suffering from back pain could potentially end your summer. The same can be said for twisted ankles and other minor injuries. When you are injured, the best parties and a great trip to the beach will not feel the same. A bad airplane seat could also make your back pain worse.
It is best to avoid injuries altogether, but if you are suffering from back pain or other injuries, know the simple remedies to help ease the pain and don’t let it ruin your vacation. An ice pack to the back and over-the-counter pain relief are all you need to get rid of the problem temporarily. Get it checked if you still suffer from pain when you get back.
Flu is also a pain, especially when it attacks in the summer. The heat and extra dryness of the season makes the common flu incredibly painful. You will feel your nose burning up and your entire body will feel hotter; this is an uncomfortable state to be in while you’re on vacation.
Vitamin C is great for preventing flu and common cold. Boosting your body’s immune system also helps prevent the flu virus from infecting your body. When you do get infected, however, you’ll see symptoms like a runny nose and sore throat, along with headaches and muscle aches.
Get enough rest and drink plenty of water when dealing with flu. You can use over-the-counter medication for cold and flu, but you still have to get enough rest to give your body a fighting chance. You’ll feel better after a couple of days and can continue enjoying your vacation.
Sun blisters are actually categorized as second-degree burns. They seldom appear on their own and are usually part of a more severe case of sunburn. That said, your lips are more sensitive than your skin, so it is still possible to get sun blisters when you spend all day under the sun.
Small blisters on lips means it is time to see a doctor. Sun blisters are not contagious, but they require immediate treatment. Some moisturizers used to treat sunburns also work with sun blisters but be sure to consult a doctor before applying anything to the blisters.
Avoid these problems and you will have a fun summer nonetheless. Spending a day at the beach, sampling new cuisines, and enjoying time with friends or family will make the summer even more enjoyable.
