What to do with a sunburn

There are sunburns of mild and severe form. Well, if you burned not much, but if all this is accompanied by itching, redness of the skin, increased body temperature. Sometimes, the temperature rises to 40 degrees. With a sunburn, the skin becomes red and hot to the touch.

And if all this is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, dizziness, then in this case without the help of a doctor can not do. Do not hesitate in a serious way what to do, but immediately call a doctor or go to the hospital yourself, especially if it concerns children.

Burned skin should not be washed with liquids containing alcohol and alkali, so as not to overdry the skin. The skin needs to be moistened and cooled. Excellent moisturize the skin of the wet sheet, which by the measure of drying change.

With sunburn, you need to drink more to compensate for the loss of fluid in the body. At a temperature you need to take an antipyretic. Usually, when we eat at sea, we take with us a first aid kit with the necessary medicines.

Panthenol spray, I believe it is a lifesaver in case of burns. Panthenol is a white, airy foam that is distributed to the skin burn sites. This remedy calms the skin, removes pain, dryness, burning, reduces heat, redness and inflammation. Spray should be sprayed, at least several times a day, on the damaged skin.

It is distributed and remains on the skin with an airy, light, white foam."To fix" this foam is not necessary, let everything remain so. So when going on vacation do not forget to take the panthenol with you.
