Ultraviolet rays in sunlight can damage cells in the outer layer of human skin, causing soreness, redness and blistering. Skin can burn after just 30 minutes of exposure to the sun.
- Move indoors or somewhere with shade.
- Cool the burn with a cold bath or apply damp towels or cold water on the burned area for at least 10 minutes.
- Make sure the victim sips plenty of cold water while his/ her skin is being cooled.
- Gently apply calamine lotion or after sun cream onto the burned area.
