The heat of over 30 degrees Celsius in recent days and the consequent drop in relative humidity lead to more children and elderly people to hospitals in the Federal District (DF) seeking treatment for typical problems of the era, such as allergies, breathing difficulties and dehydration of mouth, eyes, nostrils and skin.

The increased demand for treatment was verified today (15) at Children's Hospital of Brasilia, where the girl Alice Birth reached a fever, runny nose and sore throat. Brought by his parents, Fernando Bernardes and Eunice, she awaited test results, at 15.35, so the doctor could diagnose the real problem.

A similar situation lived and Maria Guia Francisco Magalhães, who came from Luziânia (GO) in the surroundings of Mexico City, in search of medicine for her daughter Maria Luiza, 2 years. The girl was with the whole body full of rashes that began appearing yesterday (14) and spread today. They did not know until then if the problem was caused by heat, infection or allergy.

This was the case, too, of Magdalene Evangelista, who was waiting to be called to the attention of Cristine granddaughter Isabel, 1 year, which appeared three days ago with a cough that worsens day after day, causing retching, and makes the girl does not want to eat, according to her grandmother.

The cases are the most diverse, recorded more frequently in the Midwest and Southeast, resulting often damage to the environment, starting with the increase in fires.

To minimize the problem, the secretaries of Health states most affected disclose every year, a booklet with a list of care. The measures range from the consumption of lots of water, juices and coconut water, until the need to keep the home environment clean, without dust buildup, which triggers allergic problems.

It is also important to sleep in a well ventilated and moist with wet towels or air humidifier. It is recommended to also avoid hot baths, which dry the skin, and the use of air conditioning, because it removes moisture from the environment. One should make constant use of moisturizers, cocoa butter to relieve dryness of the lips, and wash your eyes and nostrils with saline.

The Civil Defense advises avoid activities and outdoor sun exposure from 10h to 17h, and no physical exercise between 11h and 15h. You should also run very busy environments, which concentrate larger amount of pollutants.
