Sunburn Treatment in South Plainfield, NJ

Sunburns are common, acute inflammatory responses to the skin being exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR).

A few risk factors of getting sunburned include:

  • Duration of exposure
  • Height of the sun – greatest exposure is midday, around noon
  • Lack of protective sunscreen or clothing
  • Lighter skin pigmentation

Most sunburns are easily treated with home remedies, while a severe sunburn might need the evaluation of a physician.  You might want to visit a physician if you’re experiencing symptoms such as blistering, excessive peeling, chills or fever, or dizziness.
