What's Happening

Even though the calendar doesn’t say summer is here, the high temperatures of the recent weeks tell a different story.


TIPS FOR STAYING COOL


Wear cool clothing: Dress in light-weight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing, preferably of natural fabrics like cotton. Use hats and umbrellas outside. Parkinson’s patients are at a higher risk of melanoma, so cover up with light clothing and/or use sunscreen regularly. If you have not seen your dermatologist in a year or more, make an appointment for a skin check.

Drink plenty of fluids: Drink plenty of water and fruit or vegetable juice even if you don’t feel thirsty. No alcohol, coffee or tea. Seek medical help if you suspect dehydration.

Avoid direct sun: Stay indoors during the hottest hours, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you want to be outside, make sure it’s during cooler hours and you are in the shade, on a covered porch, or under an umbrella.

Don’t forget the sunscreen.
