Sunscreen, hat ... despite all your precautions, your little vacationer has sunburned. His skin is all red and tingling. Our advices.

  • You know that UV is not recommended for your child. In the sun, you apply to him, every hour, a good toast of cream targeted for his age, maximum index. And with a cap, a long-sleeved T-shirt when the sun is very high, no danger.
  • But now, one day, the sun's rays passed through the protective barriers. The sand may have removed the cream in places. The evening after the shower, no doubt, the skin is obviously all pink and tingling.

It's serious ?

  • If the redness subsides after a night's sleep, the burn was superficial. If it stays sharp, it's more serious.

Remedies on a case by case basis:

  • Stop exposure to the sun as soon as you notice redness.
  • Apply Biafine repair cream (Gifrer Barbezat) twice a day.
  • The next day, if the skin is still pink, dress your child with rather covering clothes. The cream will not be enough.

He even has blisters ...

  • It's more than a sunburn, blisters finally appeared the day after the exhibition. Your child is really burned.

It's serious ?

  • In the past, doctors talked about second-degree burns. They no longer use this term, but the blister is a sign of a deep burn. It is really a problem when the size of the blister is equivalent to half of the palm of your child's hand. The more it is extended, the more serious it is.

Remedies on a case by case basis:

  • Do not pierce the blister and let it go away on its own.
  • Continue to apply your usual treatment for a classic sunburn: homeopathy, soothing cream ...
  • In case of big blisters - more than half of a child's palm - consult the doctor. It may be necessary to prescribe antibiotic ointment.
