(WDIV) It's officially summer, and that means it's time for fun in the sun. But too much sun can lead to heat-related illnesses.

The first indication the heat is taking a toll is obvious in how you feel. Fatigue, rapid heartbeat and faintness are all signs of heat exhaustion.

Second: dehydration. Dark yellow urine and a decrease in urine output are both early signs of dehydration, and an indication that your kidneys are holding as much water as they can.

Third: heat cramps. Heavy sweating and muscle pains or spasms are all symptoms of this heat-related illness. The best thing to do is to stop physical activity and move to a cool place.

As someone's body temperature becomes dangerously high, the most severe symptoms to watch for are confusion and blacking out. When it gets to that stage, the major concern is heat stroke. That's an emergency in which you should immediately dial 911.

Heat rash and sunburn are also heat-related illnesses, with red clusters of small blisters that look like pimples on the skin being the distinguishing factor between the two.
