Hello, this is Dr K. Answers are not medical advice and do not constitute a Dr/patient relationship. I look forward to helping you today

Treatment of heat exhauation involves:
1. Resting in a cool place.
2. Rehydration with water or sports fluids. Avoid alcohol.
3. Soak in a cool bath.
4. Loosen your clothing.

If you do not begin to feel better in an hour or two of treatment, you should seek medical attention to have blood work done. You may also require IV hydration. Best of luck and I hope this helps.
