How can you help a child who is overheating?

Cooling measures. By overheating, does that mean that they are in a hot place or they are playing sports? Generally getting to a cooler place, removing and making clothing loose and drinking fluids like pedialyte or gatorade are helpful. Overheating can be very serious and if the child is confused or very red in color this would be serious and need to be seen by a doctor immediately.
