Medications including diuretics (such as furosemide) and beta-blockers (such as atenolol), which relax blood vessels in the skin tissue causing it to swell
Alcoholism Excess perspiration may lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke . Heat related illnesses can be prevented by drinking plenty of water every day along with wearing lightweight clothing during warm weather.
