Treating sunburn during the holiday season is something that happens to all of us at one time or another.
The aim in treating sunburn is to cool the burn down and to keep it cool. This can be done by taking a cool shower or bath for 30 minutes to 1 hour, adding some baking soda to the bath water does help. Applying After Sun lotion generously after your bath or in more severe cases over the counter hydro-cortisone crème to treat the burn and keep it moist. Keep applying moisturizing cream or After Sun cream until the burn has healed completely. Leave blisters intact, this will speed up the healing process. Give pain medication if necessary but do not give aspirin to children.
