Sunburn. View of a sunburnt woman holding her head suffering from a headache. Her red, tender face is caused by overexposure to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. The headache was brought about by dehydration and overheating. Treatments for too much sun include painkillers, rest in a cool, shady place and drinking a weak salt solution. In extreme cases overexposure to the sun can lead to a total breakdown of the body's heat regulating mechanisms. This is known as sunstroke. In sunstroke the body becomes dangerously overheated and without treatment, coma and death follow.
