What if we got sunburnt? ——5 Ways to Treat a Sunburn
1.Act Fast to Cool It Down
If you are near a cold pool, lake, or ocean, take a quick dip to cool your skin, but only for a few seconds so you don’t prolong your exposure. Then cover up and get out of the sun immediately.
2.Moisturize While Skin Is Damp
While skin is still damp, use a gentle moisturizing lotion (but not petroleum or oil-based ointments).
3.Decrease the Inflammation
If it is safe for you to do so, take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, such as ibuprofen, naproxen, or aspirin at the first sign of sunburn to help with discomfort and inflammation. And continue with cool compresses to help discomfort, wear loose, soft, breathable clothing to avoid further skin irritation, and stay out of the sun entirely until the sunburn heals.
4.Replenish Your Fluids
Burns draw fluid to the skin’s surface and away from the rest of the body, so you may become dehydrated. It’s important to rehydrate by drinking extra liquids, including water and sports drinks that help to replenish electrolytes.
5. See a doctor if needed
You should seek medical help if you or a child has severe blistering over a large portion of the body, has a fever and chills, or is woozy or confused.
