Introduction:

Sunburn can range from mild redness to severe skin damage that requires medical attention. OnPoint Urgent Care Houston provides prompt and effective sunburn treatment to alleviate pain, speed up healing, and minimize the risk of long-term skin damage.

Service Description:

At OnPoint Urgent Care Houston, we recognize that sunburn is not only painful but also a serious skin injury that can have long-term consequences. Our qualified healthcare professionals offer comprehensive sunburn care, including assessment of the burn severity, pain management, treatment to reduce inflammation, and education on skin protection and sun safety.

Symptoms and Types of Sunburn:

Sunburn symptoms include:

  • Redness and Inflammation: Typically the first sign of sunburn.
  • Pain and Tenderness: In the affected area, which can vary from mild to severe.
  • Swelling: In more serious cases.
  • Blisters: Indicating a more severe level of skin damage.
  • Fever and Chills: Accompanying extensive sunburns.
  • Peeling Skin: As the skin heals and regenerates.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach:

  • Immediate Care: Cool baths or compresses, aloe vera or soothing lotions, and over-the-counter pain relief as initial treatments.
  • Hydration: Encouraging increased fluid intake to counteract the drying effects of sunburn.
  • Topical Treatments: Application of corticosteroid creams for more severe burns.
  • Monitoring for Complications: Watching for signs of infection or heat-related illnesses.
  • Education on Sun Protection: Guidance on sunscreen use, protective clothing, and avoiding peak sun hours to prevent future burns.
  • Follow-Up Care: Ensuring proper healing and providing additional care instructions.

When to Seek Treatment for Sunburn:

Medical attention should be sought if:

  • The sunburn covers a large area, especially with blisters.
  • Symptoms of heat exhaustion, such as dizziness, rapid pulse, or nausea, are present.
  • There is severe pain that is not relieved with over-the-counter medications.

Importance of Professional Care:

While mild sunburn may be treated at home, moderate to severe sunburn requires professional care to manage pain and reduce the risk of complications, such as infection or heat illness.
