The main way to treat heat exhaustion is to cool down by moving to a cool place and drinking plenty of fluids.
To avoid heat exhaustion during hot weather or exercise, drink plenty of cold drinks, take cool showers and wear light-coloured, loose clothing.
Heat exhaustion is where your body gets too hot. If not treated quickly, it can turn into heatstroke, which can be life threatening.
