Sunburn

Sunburn is red, hot and sore skin caused by too much sun. It may flake and peel after a few days. You can treat it yourself. It usually gets better within 7 days.

How to ease sunburn yourself
​Do
  • get out of the sun as soon as possible

  • cool your skin with a cool shower, bath or damp towel (take care not to let a baby or young child get too cold)

  • apply aftersun cream or spray, like aloe vera

  • drink plenty of water to cool down and prevent dehydration

  • take painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen for any pain

  • cover sunburnt skin from direct sunlight until skin has fully healed

Don't
  • do not use petroleum jelly on sunburnt skin

  • do not put ice or ice packs on sunburnt skin

  • do not pop any blisters

  • do not scratch or try to remove peeling skin

  • do not wear tight-fitting clothes over sunburnt skin

See a doctor or go to urgencias if
  • your skin is blistered or swollen

  • your temperature is very high, or you feel hot and shivery

  • you feel very tired, dizzy and sick

  • you have a headache and muscle cramps

  • your baby or young child has sunburn

 

Severe sunburn can lead to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, which can be very serious.
