Most people know that too much sun is bad for you and will give you a sunburn. But some people may not know what a sunburn is or how to treat one.
Sunburn is when your skin has been overexposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. If you have ever gotten too much sun, it is likely that you have had a sunburn at some point in your life. A mild sunburn can cause redness and pain, while a severe burn can cause blisters and possibly even fever, nausea, or chills. Regardless of how bad your sunburn is, there are many things that you can do to make it more bearable until it heals.
To treat a mild sunburn:
Use an aloe vera gel or lotion on the affected area to help cool the skin and reduce inflammation.
Take aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation.
Use cool compresses for added cooling relief (never use very cold compresses as this could damage the skin).
Drink extra water as sunburn can cause dehydration.
Sunburn is a common skin condition. When you are exposed to ultra-violet radiation over a long period of time, the body cannot naturally repair all the damage, and this results in sunburn. The most common symptoms are reddening of the skin (erythema), and soreness to the touch.
To treat your sunburn, you need to work on getting rid of the heat in the affected area. This will allow for some pain relief and healing. Here are some tips:
Apply cool compresses or take a cool bath/shower
Moisturize as often as possible
Drink more water than usual to help your skin regenerate
Avoid overheating your skin with hot showers or baths.
Stay out of the sun until you have recovered from your sunburn
If you want to protect your skin from Sunburn and help it heal faster, follow these tips:
* Stay out of the sun until your skin has healed. If you must be in the sun, wear protective clothing and use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher.
* Take frequent cool baths or showers to relieve the pain. Apply a moisturizing lotion to your skin several times a day.
* Drink extra water or sports drinks. Sunburn draws fluid to the skin’s surface and away from the rest of the body, so you may become dehydrated.
* Use a 1 percent over-the-counter cortisone cream if recommended by your doctor for the inflammation or itching.
* Don’t break small blisters that form on your sunburn. If large blisters form and are uncomfortable, drain them by cutting a small hole in the tip of each blister with a sterilized needle. Then apply an antibiotic ointment and cover them with loose gauze or bandage tape.
You are probably reading this because you have a sunburn. You have not only missed out on the fun activities of your day, but now you are in pain. Your skin is tight and red. It hurts to move. You may start to feel like you have the flu with chills, fever and nausea. Every time you move it feels like a million needles are stabbing your skin.
Unfortunately, there is no way to reverse the damage from a sunburn, but there are ways to treat it. The good news is that sunburns will usually go away within 3-7 days.

Sunburn is a form of radiation burn that affects living tissue, such as skin, that results from an overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, commonly from the sun’s rays. The burn is not limited to sun exposure and can occur from other sources, such as tanning lamps or welding torches. In humans, acute and potentially serious damage occurs within seconds or minutes of unprotected exposure to the ultraviolet radiation present in natural sunlight or produced by other sources.
The term “sunburn” covers a series of phenomena in the skin ranging from redness (erythema) to blistering (second-degree burns). Sunburn can vary in severity. The most common symptoms are red or reddish skin that is hot to the touch and painful. While more severe burns may cause swelling or blistering of the skin, these symptoms are rarely seen with sunburns due to overexposure to UV radiation.
