How to Treat Sunburn with Medicare

During the summer we all enjoy soaking up the sun and making the most of the nice weather. However, when we are out and about it’s essential that we prioritise skin protection. Exposure to too much sun without taking proper precautions can lead to harmful sunburn.

Damage to the skin in the form of sunburn can be very painful and must be treated as soon as possible. Find out how our trusted Medicare range can support those suffering from sunburn.

Apply Medicare Burn Gel with Aloe Vera. 

Our Medicare Burn Gel with Aloe Vera is used to treat sunburns, minor burns and scalds. The gel is water-based with aloe vera to help heal and reduce discomfort of the skin after a bad burn.

Medicare Aloe Vera Gel is a natural way to restore hydration to the skin. It is a light, non-greasy gel which easily absorbs into the skin. A top tip is to leave your burn gel/aloe vera in the fridge. This will add further relief to the damaged skin.

Protect Sunburn Blisters with Medicare.

Blisters can form when your skin is exposed to too much heat and UV rays from the sun. This results in severe damage to blood vessels and skin tissue that causes fluid to leak. When the leaked fluid collects a blister will form on the skin. It is important to protect these blisters as they can easily become infected.

We recommend stocking a Medicare First Aid Kit at home to ensure you are prepared to treat blisters and skin tissue damage caused by sunburn. Our first aid kits are fully stocked with all the bandage and dressings essentials you need to manage and treat sunburn blisters.

Check Your Temperature with Medicare.

When you get sunburned, the damaged caused can trigger your body to react like it does to an infection. This leads to fever-like symptoms such as a high temperature. Monitor your body temperature with a Medicare Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer.

Our Medicare Non-Contact Thermometer is a fast and accurate infrared thermometer with convenient features such as a fever alarm. This is the perfect tool to monitor the temperature of someone who has experienced sunburn and is at risk of developing a fever.

Seek Medical Advice

We recommend that you contact your GP, pharmacist or healthcare professional if you have any questions regarding the treatment of sunburn. Depending on the severity of the burns they will assign you the most appropriate treatment plan.

It is essential that you talk to your GP if you experience symptoms such as swelling, vomiting, headaches, muscles cramps, high temperature, dizziness or shivers.
