1 doctor agrees
In brief: Rest, fluid, cooling
Typically occurs because of extrenuous activities, especially during hot weather, or just prolonged heat exposure.
Older folks get this much easier/faster. In mild cases, resting, plenty of fluids, and keep cool will do fine. More severe case may need hospital care. If his tempt is high...103 or more and having symptoms..Dizziness/headaches/vomitting..Then er. Consult your doc.. Good luck.
