Tackle 4 of the Most Common Summer Health Issues

For months and months we Canadians impatiently await the arrival of summer. We long for this amazing season for so long, and when it’s finally here, we embrace it wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, summer is also full of not so fun surprises which are all-too ready to rain on your parade. These surprises also try to damper the good times at picnics, pool parties, and backyard barbecues.

I’m talking about 4 of the most common summer health issues which are allergies, sunburns, sore feet, and body pain. Depending on the summer activity, you may even experience a combination of these! Thing is, we wait for the summer months with so much anticipation, we need tactics to tackle these issues so that we can truly enjoy the season without distress.

Tackle the 4 Most Common Summer Health Issues



Tackle 4 of the most Common Summer Health Issues:


  1. Problem: Allergies

If you’re a summer allergy sufferer, you know a runny nose and constant sneezing can really put a damper on your summer plans.

Try: Claritin®

Help take a break from allergy symptoms with Claritin®. It’s non-drowsy so you don’t need to slow down to smell the roses (unless you want to, of course). 


  1. Problem: Sunburns

Phew, that summer sun really burns! Stick to the shade this summer and keep the whole family covered with hats, long sleeves and a sunscreen you can trust.

Try: Coppertone®

I’ve had my kids slathered in Coppertone® since they were babies! No one’s getting a burn on my watch. It’s Canada’s #1 sun care brand and keeps us covered from beach to barbeque. 


  1. Problem: Sore Feet

With all the activities we do in the summer, my feet really take a beating. Especially on those days when I pick the cute shoes over the practical padded ones.

Try: Dr. Scholl’s® For Her® Comfort Insoles

Hello sweet cushiony comfort! Grab a pair of these and stay on your feet longer. Dr. Scholl’s® even makes a high-heel version for summer date nights. 


  1. Problem: Body Pain

I love summer road trips but I don’t love the throbbing back pain I get from all that time in the car. This summer, nothing is stopping my family from hitting the open road.


ALEVE ® helps relieve a whole range of pain from backaches to headaches. You can ride pain-free in the front while the kids sing their hearts out in the back.


As you can see, Bayer® can help you conquer those seasonal woes, and help you get set for summer and really enjoy it! To be sure these products are suitable for you, always read and follow the label.

  71. My summer issue is sunburns. One it TOO MANY! I’m always conscious about the sun and it’s effects but it’s hard to want to stay inside with my 2 boys when it’s so beautiful out.
