(HealthDay News) -- Spending too much time outdoors without protective sunscreen can take a toll on your skin.
Unlike a thermal burn, sunburn may not be immediately noticeable. Symptoms usually start four hours after sun exposure and resolve within a week, says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
For minor sunburn, the CDC suggests:
- Treat pain with aspirin, acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
- Drink lots of water.
- Avoid additional sun exposure.
- Take cool baths or apply cool wet cloths to the burned area.
