    man with sunburn

    Sunburn should be avoided because it damages the skin. Although the discomfort is usually minor and healing often occurs in about a week, a more severe sunburn may require medical attention.

    Symptoms of sunburn are well known:  the skin becomes red, painful and abnormally warm after sun exposure.

    What to do:

    • Prevent sunburn with sunscreen and protective clothing, including hats, long sleeves and pants, and SPF-rated clothing.
    • Consult a doctor if the sunburn affects an infant younger than one year of age or if fever, fluid-filled blisters or severe pain are present.


    Also, remember these tips when treating sunburn:

    • avoid repeated sun exposure,
    • apply cold compresses or immerse the sunburned area in cool water,
    • apply moisturizing lotion to affected areas (do not use salve, butter or ointment) and
    • do not break blisters.
