Care for Sunburn

OK, you tried really hard to keep your child from getting sunburned, but it happened anyway.  Here are a few tips from WebMD to make the recovery as painless as possible. 
 
  1. Get your child indoors or in the shade
  2. Apply cool compresses
  3. Drink lots of water
  4. Apply creams or gels such as aloe vera (remember, they don't provide sun protection)
  5. Check the WebMD page for symptoms that require a doctor's attention such as fever or blisters.
