How to Treat a Sunburn – Sunburn Treatment

A sunburn is a radiation burn to the skin produced by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, commonly from the sun”s rays. A similar burn can be produced by overexposure to other sources of UV, such as tanning lamps and welding arcs. Exposure of the skin to lesser amounts of UV will often produce a suntan. Sunburn.

Most sunburns can be treated at home. If you notice yourself, friend, or family member beginning to burn, immediately get out of the sun. If this is not possible, move to a shady spot and apply sunscreen. Also, cover exposed areas to keep from further irritation.

Relief can also come from anti-inflammatories and pain relievers like aspirin and ibuprofen. Placing cool compresses on skin can relieve pain. Taking a cool, but not cold, bath can also help sunburned skin. Avoid bath salts, perfumes, or oils because they can further irritate your skin. Using an aloe vera gel or lotion, or other drugstore treatment can help relieve skin. Do not apply butter or oil to sunburns.

Until the sunburn has healed, stay out of the sun and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Dehydration is frequently a by-product of a sunburn. Avoid drinking alcohol because it can dehydrate skin further.

Use a sunburn Over-The-Counter remedy containing aloe vera. Use a light moisturizer or a dusting of powder to relieve chafing. Avoid perfumes or scented items. * Use Over-the-counter analgesics to relieve the pain and headache and reduce the fever.

Use an OTC topical steroid cream such as Cortaid if the pain persists. Don’t use local anesthetic creams or sprays that numb pain such as Benzocaine. They can cause allergic reactions in some people.

Rest in a comfortable position, in a cool, quiet room. Stay out of the sun.

Chemical sunscreens

Chemical sunscreens absorb the harmful ultraviolet light to protect the skin against sunburn. Because different chemicals have varying effects on UVA and UVB protection, a combination of chemicals is usually used in sunscreens. Chemical sunscreens should be applied at least 15 minutes before sun exposure, to make the chemicals — cinnamates, octocrylene and the less commonly used para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) and derivatives — more active on the skin.

Physical sunscreens

Physical sunscreens deflect UV radiation from the skin rather than absorb it. Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide are particularly effective, especially for the nose and ears. The spectrum of titanium dioxide protection extends into the UVA range and so it is often included in combinations with chemical sunscreens.

Drink plenty of fluids to replace the water lost through sweating in the sun, and to cool down. Do not drink alcohol because it will dehydrate you further.

For mild sunburn, apply a moisturising lotion or a special aftersun cream from a pharmacy. Aftersun helps to cool the skin as well as moisturising and relieving the feeling of tightness. Calamine lotion can also be used to relieve itching and soreness.

For adults, painkillers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen can help relieve pain and reduce swelling.
