Ms. Zhang, a Hefei citizen, has chronic pharyngitis and feels uncomfortable in her throat with electric mosquito repellent incense, so she applies a large amount of toilet water every day. As expected, mosquitoes do not bite her, and after applying toilet water, she is especially cool, killing two birds with one stone. However, on the night of the 16th, Ms. Zhang’s eyes suddenly darkened, followed by chest tightness, nausea and other symptoms. Her family rushed her to the Second Affiliated Hospital of Anyi University. The doctor diagnosed heatstroke.
The doctor’s explanation made Ms. Zhang even more confused. She suffered heatstroke because she applied too much toilet water. The doctor said that the flower dew water contains 75% alcohol and 5% essence ingredients. When applied to the skin, the alcohol volatilizes, it will take away the heat of the body and produce a cool feeling. However, if it is used excessively for a long time, it will be difficult for the epidermis to perspire, resulting in functional disorder of the heat dissipation system. Sweat will not flow out, the body’s heat will not be excreted, and hot gas will accumulate inside. Heatstroke symptoms such as chest tightness, nausea and headache will follow.
It is reported that the use of toilet water still has some knowledge, and nothing can be overused. In the hot sun, it is more inappropriate to apply excessive amount of toilet water on the skin, because the alcohol component therein is a conductor, which will aggravate the burning of the skin by sunlight. In addition, the toilet water also contains an ingredient called “Emerald”, which can make mosquitoes lose their awareness of human bites. However, if patients with dermatitis apply toilet water, “Emerald” will also cause allergic reactions on the skin and aggravate dermatitis symptoms.
The doctor reminds that dermatitis patients can drop four or five drops of toilet water on the electric mosquito repellent incense sheet, which can not only repel mosquitoes but also avoid skin allergy; Put four or five drops of toilet water before washing clothes and towels, soak them for 15 minutes, and then wash them to make the clothes fragrant, but mosquitoes do not want to come near them any more; Two drops can disinfect and prevent bacteria when wiping furniture.
