 What about sunburn during summer vacation? Several steps to keep in mind

First, quickly cool the sunburned skin. After going out for sunburn, wrap ice cubes or ice water with towel as soon as possible for cold compress, but pay attention not to let skin contact ice cubes directly. This will further damage the skin after sunburn, 3-4 times a day, 15-20 minutes each time, to alleviate skin stress reaction after sunburn.

Second, rational drug use. If cold compress can not improve or alleviate swelling pain, it is recommended to go to dermatology. If the skin is itchy in the sunburn area, cetirizine tablets can be taken orally and glucocorticoids can be rubbed externally.

Third, apply moisturizing products. Low-sensitive moisturizing cream, Aloe Vera gel, vaseline and so on can be used, but it is recommended that it be reused after 24-48 hours. In addition, the friction between clothing and skin should be minimized.

Finally, Li Xue also reminds us that if the sunburn is serious, blisters should not be easily punctured. Self-puncturing blisters may increase the risk of infection, and greatly hinder the repair of the skin itself. If the blister breaks accidentally, you can clean and disinfect the wound and apply antibiotic ointment. If the sunburn is particularly serious, fever, vomiting, head and chills are the symptoms. Dont carry them hard. Getting medical treatment quickly is the right choice.
