Altitude Sickness
Acute mountain sickness is a frequent problem in the Himalayan region. The altitude of the peaks and trails between them are among highest on earth. Acclimatization to altitude above 3000 meters takes time. The body undergoes a number of physiological changes some of which are immediate like increased pulse rate & respiratory rate. Others appear more slowly over a period of weeks like the change in acid base balance and production of extra red blood cells. These changes plus the effect of intense sunlight, walking hard & dehydration may cause a number or mild vague symptoms such as Loss of appetite, fatigue, headache, nausea, dizziness, palpitations, sleeplessness, mild shortness of breath with exercise. The best treatment is prevention! Avoid rapid ascends, take acclimatization symptoms seriously using rest days or diamox. If symptoms are severe and the patient is ill DESCEND IMMEDIATELY, 300 Meters of descent or more should be sought. This usually give rapid improvement.

Sun Stroke
It is always advised to apply proper Nivea SUN SPF30 Sun Block Lotion for face & body and also to keep major body skin covered and avoid direct expose with sun.
