This summer, heavy rains and heatwaves are rampant. It is easy to sweat in hot weather like these days. However, if the flowing sweat is left unattended or allowed to flow, it can lead to health problems, so special attention is needed.
The reason why you should immediately wipe off the sweat from the heat wave
Sweat is one of the physiological phenomena for regulating body temperature and removing impurities from the body. 99% of sweat is water. Here, sodium chloride, lactic acid, and glucose are mixed. A person’s body temperature should be maintained at about 37 degrees Celsius, and when the body temperature rises, it releases heat through sweat to help maintain body temperature.
Sweating is a good thing, but if you don’t wipe off the sweat right away, you risk suffering from a fungal skin disease called ‘sores’. It is a disease caused by a fungal infection of the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, nails, or hair. This disease often develops in a hot and humid environment, and is likely to occur in adolescents and young adults who sweat a lot in the summer.
Tinea versicolor should be suspected when mottled spots바카라 appear on the chest, back, armpits, and neck. The discoloration of the skin caused by tinea versicolor may persist for several months or more after treatment has ended. Therefore, experts recommend maintaining a dry and cool environment even in the heat and using shampoo containing antifungal ingredients in the summer when showering or taking a bath. Also, when going out, it is good to wear clothes that are well ventilated so that you do not get sweaty.
Sweat in hot weather… Watch out for constipation and urinary stones
You should also be aware of getting constipated in hot weather. This is because when you sweat a lot, water and electrolytes in your body can easily escape from your body. Constipation is the most common digestive disease in which the number of bowel movements is significantly less than normal or difficult to defecate, and it occurs mainly in women and the elderly.
Cho Ho-yeong, director of the colon and anus center at Daedong Hospital, cautioned, “In summer, the water in the body is often reduced (a large amount of sweat) due to hot weather and unreasonable diets.
Experts recommend regular intake of sufficient fluids and good quality meals to prevent constipation, especially in summer. Drinking too much coffee, alcohol, or salty food can cause the body to lose more water due to its diuretic effect. Exercising in the heat makes it easier to sweat. At this time, it is good to pay attention to replenishing fluids and electrolytes with ion drinks.
In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to urinary stones, which are known to have a high number of patients in summer. Urolithiasis refers to the formation of stones (stones) in the urinary tract, the pathway through which urine is made and excreted from the body. It occurs most often in people in their 40s and is known to be two to three times more likely to be absent in men than in women. In summer, we sweat a lot, but the amount of urine is relatively reduced. As a result, calcium or uric acid, which is a component of urinary stones, is concentrated in the urine and appears enlarged in the urinary tract for about 1 to 2 months.
To prevent urinary stones, experts recommend adequate hydration before and after activities that make you sweat a lot, and to reduce your intake of high-salt foods. It is also recommended to eat foods containing citric acid, which inhibits stone formation, such as oranges, tangerines, and lemons.
