Thanks for your query.

Overheating is a serious problem. Actually, If you get too hot too fast, your body can't move quick enough to cool itself and if you continue the action that's causing the excessive heat production you can overheat, have a heat exhaustion, heat cramps, heat syncope, and heat rash and heat stroke.

When you overheat it affects your whole body, causing difficulty breathing, accelerated heartbeat, dizziness, vomiting and extreme dehydration.

There are some disorders which can produce overheating-like hyperthyroidism, liver disorder, fabry’s disease, antipsychotic drug intake etc.

Some blood teat to be done to differentiate those conditions-thyroid profile test, liver function test, complete blood count etc. but this investigation to be done by the opinion of your treating physician.

Please follow this homemade remedies to prevent overheating-

1.     Moving the individual out of the hot environment.
2.     Implementing cooling measures as needed.
3.     Increasing fluid intake.
4.     Wearing appropriate clothing and sunscreen.
5.     Try to remain yourself remaining in a cool environment in majority of day times.
6.     Take appropriate medical supervision if you have any disease listed above.

Consult with your physician about further opinion.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Wish you a speedy recovery.
