In summer, people most often suffer from poisoning, burns, overheating in the sun and viral enteritis. Typical ailments of the vacation period were listed by Andrey Zvonkov, a general practitioner.
“These are mainly food poisoning, sunburn, overheating problems, and viral enteritis. The latter most often occurs at the end of July and in August. When the water is hot, the wave will come again,” Zvonkov said in an interview with URA.RU.
The therapist added that enteritis is of varying severity: there are about 70 different options. Children are especially hard on him.
“They have poor thermoregulation. They start to have a temperature very quickly. It’s easier with adults: he gave two cans of Regidron – drink, but the child refuses. You need to put a dropper,” added the doctor.
