We have to admit that it’s easier to prevent a sunburn than other skin diseases, and of course, you can do it by yourself by not exposing your body to sunlight for a long time (unlike other diseases that need special treatment for prevention).
How does the sun affect your skin? When you lie out in the sun for a long period of time, your skin starts to burn, become inflamed and irritated. The ultraviolet light can burn your skin even if you wear sunscreen, so in this case, you should choose your beach hours wisely. Thus, it has been proven that sunburn can lead to cancer in the long run.
If you want to go to the beach, it’s important to apply sunscreen every two hours in order to prevent sunburn. If you have a sunburn, you have to cool the skin down in cold baths, keep your body hydrated and consult your doctor for an appropriate treatment that can speed healing.
The most common symptoms of sunburn include red and painful skin, fever, chills, nausea, headache and weakness. These symptoms may disappear after a few days.

First of all, if you want to treat contact dermatitis, you have to identify the allergens or substances that cause this skin reaction and avoid touching them.
