What are the signs of dehydration and how to handle it?

Over sweating, vomiting or diarrhea can result in excessive loss of fluids from the body. If it is not replaced, dehydration can occur. Dry mouth, sunken eyes, dizziness or inadequate urination are signs of dehydration. Plenty of water is recommended. Electrolyte solution will help replace the fluid and salt that has been lost. Try to stay indoors in a cool room. Reach a hospital if you feel very sick. You may need intravenous treatment for quicker recovery.
