NHS Ayrshire and Arran has released advice to help those showing signs of heat exhaustion – including how to cool them down.

The main symptoms of heat exhaustion include a high temperature, dizziness, nausea and potentially vomiting.

To help cool them down, move the person into a cool place and remove all unnecessary clothing like a jacket or socks.

Get them to drink a sports or rehydration drink, or cool water, and cool their skin by spraying or sponging them with water, and fan them.

Cold packs wrapped in a cloth and put under their armpits or on their neck can also work well, and you should stay with them until they’re better.
