Watch for the signs and know the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke. One of the big differences is the symptom of sweat. When suffering from heat exhaustion, one will sweat excessively, whereas, a person suffering heat stroke will not sweat. Heat exhaustion may make one feel dizzy or faint, while a symptom of heat stroke is a throbbing headache.

If you believe you or someone else may be suffering from heat exhaustion, seek an air conditioned space or take a cool shower to cool off. If you believe you or someone else may be suffering from heat stroke, call 911 immediately.

A person suffering from either heat exhaustion or heat stroke may experience nausea and vomiting.
