Cold, wet wash­cloths

Townsville Bulletin - - NQ Life -

AP­PLY to ma­jor blood ves­sels that pump blood near the sur­face of the skin in the armpit and where the front of the thigh meets the trunk.

In cases of over­heat­ing, a cold, wet wash­cloth on these spots – along with the head, which also has sig­nif­i­cant blood flow dur­ing ex­er­cise – al­lows more blood to pass close to a cool source and dis­si­pate heat more quickly.
