Problems related to sun damage, such as skin cancer and age spots, are some of the most common ones seen in dermatology. Spending just a few too many minutes in the sun can leave your skin burned, inflamed, and painful, so wearing sunscreen is essential. If you’ve already suffered a sunburn, then watch this video for tips on finding relief.
Taking an anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen, can help reduce inflammation from a sunburn, and resting in a cool area can also offer some relief. You can also try a sunburn treatment medication that can numb your skin and provide pain relief. Finally, applying hydrocortisone cream can help cool the skin and minimize redness.
