Effective Sunburn Remedies. Try these tips to relieve the pain. They work!
Always wear sunscreen.
Most doctors will recommend “Silver Cream” It’s formulated to protect against and kill bacteria, fungus and yeast. This antimicrobial gel can be applied on scrapes, cuts and minor burns. It works for up to three days and doesn’t sting or stain. This antimicrobial gel also hydrates to help minimize scarring. It comes in many different brands and can be bought at Walmart and many pharmacies. It can also be bought in small packages to take on trips. I once had a very bad scrape on my leg and it worked for the pain and helped healed the scrape. For more severe burns get a prescription for a stronger Silverdine Cream. Works wonders. Keep in refrigerator for longer life. Great for all wounds or burns. Promotes skin healing.
