Sunburn can be a painful and uncomfortable condition resulting from overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. While prevention is crucial, it’s essential to know how to treat a sunburn in case it happens. Health Shots reached out to Dr Sonali Kohli, Consultant Dermatologist and Venereologist, Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital, to talk about how to treat a sunburn at home. She says the most important step is to identify a sunburn and not confuse it with a skin rash. Sunburns are usually localized, more reddish and painful. They do not itch but have a burning sensation which might worsen when cloth irritates the skin. Sunburns typically heal in a week naturally but there are some remedies that can help get rid of the sunburn fast.
