Summer is a time where many injuries increase for both adults and kids. What are the most common summer injuries? Knowing this could help prevent or remind people to be cautious as they enjoy summer in the area.

Medscape recently took a look at common summer injuries, and here's what they found were the most common:

1. Drowning
2. Diving and Water Sports Injuries
3. Heatstroke and Dehydration
4. Exercise-Associated Hyponatremia (that's getting TOO much water while exercising)
5. Sunburn
6. Rhus Dermatitis
7. Insect Stings and Bites

For children 5 and under, drowning is the second leading cause of death, with swimming pools the number one culprit. Sunburn is one of the top summer injuries--DON'T FORGET TO APPLY AND REAPPLY SUNSCREEN!
