What is Sunburn?
Sunburn is a type of skin damage that occurs when the skin is exposed to too much ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or other sources such as tanning beds. Symptoms of sunburn can include redness, pain, and blistering. Sunburn can increase the risk of skin cancer and premature aging of the skin. Prevention of sunburn involves wearing protective clothing, using sunscreen, and avoiding excessive sun exposure during peak hours.
When is it necessary to see a doctor?
Sunburn can be treated with home remedies such as cool compresses and moisturizing creams, but if the burn is severe or accompanied by symptoms such as fever or chills, it's important to seek medical attention.
