Fun in the sun may be your summer mantra and, although you can never have too much fun, you can definitely have too much sun. We understand that it is often hard to remember to reapply sunscreen or go under the shade once in a while. It will be even harder to stay clear of the sun during the recommended 10 am to 4 pm time frame that you have to avoid those harmful rays. So if you get the inevitable sunburn, here are some tips you can use at home to treat it.
If you experience pain then over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and aspirin, are available to manage it. These medications will also help reduce inflammation on the sunburned areas.
Sunburns are manageable, but can be bothersome when you get them. For more information about how to avoid sunburn, or for other skincare advice, call Dr. Kathleen Behr at (559) 435-SKIN (7546) or visit our clinic at 1125 E.
