What to do if you have already burned your skin?

If, despite the advice above, you have already burned your skin, there are some tips that you can take into account.


Calm the burning

If you have burned your skin, you probably have pain and burning in the affected area. To calm this feeling, you need to apply some products. If you choose cream or gel, it may have Aloe Vera and vitamin E. These types of substances act as regenerators.

Apply cold cloths

It is also advisable that you apply cold cloths to the skin. They will relieve discomfort and promote recovery. Another good trick is to put the cream in the refrigerator, before applying it, to alleviate the pain and redness of the skin.

No heat

It is common sense to avoid hot water, and do not expose yourself to the sun, as the heat will make the burn worse, and can cause serious skin injuries. Remember not to use hard brushes or sponges when showering, so as not to further hurt the places where the skin has been burned.

If the burn presents any strange symptoms, such as fever, blisters, breakouts, or excess burning, you should go immediately to the dermatologist. These symptoms may be signs of a second or third degree burn. Medical supervision is essential.
