How To Treat Baby Sunburn

So what do you do if your baby shows sunburn symptoms after a day at the beach? Pink or red skin, blisters, swelling, and itching are some of the symptoms of sunburn. Because your baby’s skin is sensitive, sunburn is a serious problem which needs to be treated immediately. Here are some tips to alleviate your baby’s sunburn:
  • Apply a cool washcloth to the affected skin. This helps relieve any swelling.
  • If your baby is itching, apply aloe vera or calamine lotion to the sunburn.
  • Use over-the-counter pain relief medicine made for babies to reduce irritation.
  • Make sure you give your baby water and other fluids to prevent dehydration.
  • Keep your baby in loose clothing until the sunburn has healed.
  • Do NOT apply vitamin E, petroleum jelly, warm water, or sunburn anesthetic sprays to sunburned skin.
  • Make sure you call a doctor if large areas of your baby’s skin are sunburned or if your baby gets a fever.
