Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
If you are outdoors then you must go to a shady environment and take rest. Intake of fluid with salt is recommended which might include water as well as fruit juices. If you drink about 500 ml to 750 ml fluids then the urine color should get back to pale yellow in a few 2 to 3 hours time. Please drink slowly and protect yourself from outdoor heat.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.
