You can assist by editing it now. A how-to guide is available. A sunburn is a burn to living tissue such as skin produced by overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, commonly from the sun 's rays. Exposure of the skin to lesser amounts of UV will often produce a suntan . Usual mild symptoms in humans and animals are red or reddish skin that is hot to the touch, general fatigue, and mild dizziness. An excess of UV-radiation can be life-threatening. Excessive UV-radiation is the leading cause of skin cancer While sunburn is prevented through the use of sunscreen the effectiveness of sunscreen to prevent malignant melanoma is debated and many scientists believe it is counterproductive in this respect. Therefore clothing (and hats) is considered the better method to protect skin. Moderate sun tanning without burning can also prevent sunburn as it increases the amount of melanin in the skin, which is the skin's natural defense against overexposure. Importantly, the sunburn and the increase in melanin production are both triggered by direct DNA damage . When the skin cells' DNA is damaged by UV radiation

See also: Sunburn first aid Causes Return to top Sunburn results when the amount of exposure to the sun or other ultraviolet light source exceeds the ability of the body's protective pigment, melanin , to protect the skin. Sunburn in a very light-skinned person may occur in less than 15 minutes of midday sun exposure, while a dark-skinned person may tolerate the same exposure for hours. It is now recognized that sunburn and sun exposure should not be treated as insignificant. Deaths have resulted from acute sun exposure, and significant temporary disability is experienced by millions of sunburned people each year.

Sunburn treatment: What works?
What's the most effective sunburn treatment? When does sunburn require medical attention?
- Dana / Illinois
Mayo Clinic dermatologist Lawrence Gibson, M.D., and colleagues answer select questions from readers.
Unfortunately, there is no fast-fix sunburn treatment. Once sunburn occurs, you can't do much to limit damage to your skin. However, the following tips may reduce your pain and discomfort in the hours and days following sunburn:
  • Take anti-inflammatory medication, such as aspirin or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), on a regular basis according to the label instructions until redness and soreness subsides. Apply a moisturizing cream, aloe or 1 percent hydrocortisone cream to affected skin. A low-dose (0.5 percent to 1 percent) hydrocortisone cream may decrease pain and swelling, and speed up healing.
Some dermatologists warn against using products that claim to relieve sunburn pain but may actually irritate your skin or cause an allergic reaction. These include topical "-caine" products, such as benzocaine. Keep in mind that it may take four to six hours after sun exposure to know the full extent and severity of sunburn. If blisters form, don't break them. They contain your natural body fluid (serum) and are a protective layer. Also, breaking blisters slows the healing process and increases the risk of infection. If needed, you can lightly cover blisters with gauze.

There is something mysterious about the sun and skin. Why is it that if you go out on a bright summer day and spend an hour in the sun , you get a sunburn ? You get a sunburn, that is, unless you happen to have taken the time to get a gradual tan. With a tan you can go out in the sun and nothing happens. Of course, that doesn't apply if you have "fair skin." The fair skinned among us never get a tan, so they always get sunburned. Unless of course they are wearing a sunscreen... Does this make sense? What exactly is a sunscreen? And what is a tan? What is the difference between a tan and a burn? Why can you spread a little blob of lotion on yourself and be protected, but if you forget you are miserable? If you take the time to look at skin and sunlight in some detail, all of this actually does begin to make sense. You can learn a huge amount about your body in the process. So, that's what we'll do in this article. First, let's take a look at how skin works.

  • "Wait a half hour after eating before you can safely go swimming." This one seemed almost universally accepted when I was a child and is still believed today. The myth involves the possibility of suffering severe muscle cramping and drowning from swimming on a full stomach. While it's true that the digestive process does divert the circulation of the blood toward the gut and to a certain extent, away from the muscles, the fact is that an episode of drowning caused by swimming on a full stomach has never been documented. Neither the American Academy of Pediatrics nor the American Red Cross makes any specific recommendations about waiting any amount of time after eating before taking a swim. There's a theoretical possibility that one could develop a cramp while swimming with a full stomach, but a person swimming in a pool or controlled swimming area could easily exit the water if this happens. As with any exercise after eating, swimming right after a big meal might be uncomfortable, but it won't cause you to drown.

    • Sun emits ultraviolet light, also known as ultraviolet radiation. There are three types of ultraviolet radiation, UV-C, UV-B and UV-A. UV-C does not impact the skin, and is effectively screened by the atmosphere. Even with depletion of ozone, UV-C does not have any impact on humans. UV-A is very harmful and penetrates not only the skin, but also the eyes. UV-A rays penetrate the skin the deepest. Approximately 90% of UV-B is absorbed by the epidermis, and approximately half of UV-A reaches the dermis and subcutaneous fat. UV-A rays are the primary offenders in sunburn. Sunburn accelerates the aging process, manifested by wrinkles and a pebble stone appearance of skin, which develops over time. It is also a culprit in the increased risk of cataracts and skin cancer. As per Dr. Auerbach, UV-B is 1,000 times more responsible for inducing redness of the skin than UV-A. UV-B has its own timeline, as opposed to UV-A, and onset is usually 2-4 hours after exposure, peaking after 12-36 hours, and fading over 3 days.

    When, why and how to treat for sunburn. Sunburn should be treated before it happens, when it might and after it does happen. This can be in winter or in summer, on land or on water, wherever direct sun or highly reflected light may reach and therefore threaten bare skin. Sunburn should be treated for the healing of current sunburn pain, skin damage and potential skin cancer as well as to prevent further sunburn. Here are the several ways we may do this. Use Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera comes from the aloe vera plant and may be squeezed from its leaves. Purchasing and learning to care for an Aloe Vera plant through the summer can be a wonderfully relieving investment. This healthful moisturizer is frequently used for sunburn and is applied to the affected areas of the skin as a rub to re-moisturize the dried and burnt surfaces. You can also purchase aloe vera creams and ointments that may include other moisturizers or treatments for dry or burned skin. General Moisturizers.

      Non-Infectious Risks During Travel
      Exposure to sunlight is influenced by geography, climate, and time of day and year. Countries near the equator and areas at higher elevation receive more UV rays. Sunlight exposure is highest during the summer and between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Outdoor activities, whether snow skiing or spending the day at the beach, increase the chances of getting sunburned. Snow and light-colored sand reflect UV light and increase sunburn risk. In these situations, UV rays may reach exposed skin from both above and below. Even on cloudy days, UV radiation reaches the earth. Many drugs increase sensitivity to sunlight and the risk of getting sunburn. Some common ones include thiazides, diuretics, tetracycline, doxycycline, sulfa antibiotics, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen.

    What is sunburn?
    solaria or tanning salons. At a cellular level, sunburn is associated with microscopic changes in the skin. There is the formation of UV induced sunburn cells and a reduction in Langerhan cells and mast cells, which play an essential part of the body's immune defence system.
    What causes sunburn?
    • Ultraviolet A (UV-A) = 320-400nm Ultraviolet B (UV-B) = 290-320nm
    UV-C radiation is filtered out or absorbed in the outer atmosphere so does not pose a problem to humans. It is UV-A and UV-B radiation that are the primary causes of sunburn. Although both wavelengths are implicated in sunburn, the skin reacts differently to each one.

    Caution don t ever cover a sunburn that is blistered or open with an ointment, oil, salve or butter, for it will make the area susceptible to infection.
    Prevention is the best remedy here, if you can. Long-term results from excessive exposure to the sun, such as skin cancer and wrinkled skin, can be avoided with proper precautions. One of the best preventatives is to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 that offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays. You can get as much sun sightseeing as baking at the beach, so use sunscreen whenever you are outdoors. Use an aloe vera lotion containing a sunblock. This will cut out 90% of the burning rays and allow 75% of the tanning rays to reach the skin. To speed healing take the following supplements for a few days after getting burned: 1,000 mg of vitamin C, 400 I.U. of vitamin E, 15 mg of beta carotene, and 1-2 tablespoons (or about 3 capsules per teaspoon) of flaxseed oil, an essential fatty acid. Caution : don't ever cover a sunburn that is blistered or open with an ointment, oil, salve or butter, for it will make the area susceptible to infection.
    Aloe Take as many leaves as necessary from an aloe plant; refrigerate; peel off top layer of leaves; apply the side of the leaf with flesh exposed directly to the sunburn. Other remedies use aloe vera juice: for mild to medium sunburn, keep the affected area moist with aloe vera juice. Repeat frequently. This will reduce the pain and the amount of peeling. Aloe vera ointment works well, too, as it contains oil and will not evaporate. For a severe sunburn, keep the area moist at all times with aloe vera juice. Since aloe vera is an astringent, you may want to use aloe vera ointment or some sort of oil, such as olive or baby. Aloe is very effective in relieving pain and inflammation.
