If you mess up and go to Mullet Fest without sunscreen - you might get blisters and stuff. Maybe you don't want to go to the Red Rooster Hospital and wait in that dingy ER for treatment. I don't blame you. Treating a sunburn involves reducing pain and discomfort, preventing further damage to the skin, and promoting healing. Here are some tips on how to treat a sunburn yourself
Cool the skin: Take a cool bath or shower, or apply a cold, damp towel to the affected area to reduce heat and inflammation.
Moisturize: Apply a gentle, non-irritating moisturizer to the affected area to help soothe and hydrate the skin.
Use aloe vera: Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory agent that can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with sunburn. Apply aloe vera gel or lotion to the affected area several times daily.
Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help rehydrate the skin and prevent further damage.
Take pain relievers: Over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with sunburn.
Avoid further sun exposure: Stay out of the sun until your sunburn has healed, and wear protective clothing and sunscreen when you go outside.
If your sunburn is severe or you experience blistering, fever, or chills, seek medical attention.
