Did all that fun in the sun end with a nasty burn? Let’s get you some relief.
Step 1: Cool off your skin
Cool off your skin with a cool bath or cool, wet compresses. If you opt for the bath, add a half cup of baking soda or several cups of colloidal oatmeal (available at drugstores). Soak for 10 minutes. Repeat as often as needed.
Step 2: Apply something soothing
Apply something soothing, like aloe vera from a plant or lotion, or 1% hydrocortisone cream.
Do not use petroleum-based products or products with benzocaine; they’ll just lock in the heat.
Step 3: Take an aspirin
If you’re an adult, take an aspirin; its anti-inflammatory properties will help relieve the pain.
Never give aspirin to children under 16; give them acetaminophen or ibuprofen instead.
Step 4: Let your skin heal
Let your skin heal. If blisters form, leave them alone; if they break, use an antibiotic ointment. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about peeling—but a moisturizing lotion can ease any itching.
Step 5: Buy a good sunscreen
Buy a good sunscreen and a big sunhat so you don’t get burned again. And stay out of the sun until your burn has healed!
Did You Know?
It’s easier to get sunburned at high altitudes because you’re less protected by the atmosphere—for every 1,000 feet you go up, your exposure to UV rays increases 4%.
Step 1.Stay indoors and put your two middle fingers up out the window
step 2. IF you go outside wear a huge hat and large sunglasses and put your 2 middle fingers up at the sun
did you know?: the sun Is the hottest planet rather then mercury or Venus
Nice Vid! Instead of Aspirin (or Ibu) you can take ORGANIC WATER and HQ!(not high dose) minerals. Water also makes the blood thinner (who guessed😂) and the minerals alkalinise the blood. And don't eat or drink any industrial sugar or ethanol, but eat and drink fresh organic vegetables and fresh fruits. Why? Because it's an inflammatory response and you can die the death of thousand cuts!! This is a very big serious wound so take nice care of your precious self.
This helped me so much! I got a pretty nasty burn while I was at a rodeo, and two days later, I had a huge blister on my right shoulder. I took a bath with baking soda and oatmeal, and the very same day it almost disappeared!
+HopeMad I'm better I put on aloe Vera on it helps I took a little cool shower then I put the aloe Vera on last I did was let the aloe Vera stay there until the next day and took a shower I repeated these steps and got better in a week or 5 days
