The Common Sunburn and When to Get Help

The Common Sunburn and When to Get Help

Nothing beats a perfect tan. Having sunkissed skin has been a trend in this day and age. We all want a taste of that golden glow. These “natural” tanning sessions under the sun can cause sunburns if you stayed longer than necessary.

Not everyone responds the same way to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays, and how soon a sunburn begins on your skin depends on your skin type, the duration of your exposure, and the sun’s intensity. Niagara Health Centre Pharmacy advises you to apply on some sunscreen to lessen the damage – and even avoid sunburns.

Sunburns are quite common and can be soothed by ointments from our Pharmacy in Niagara, Canada. But how do you know if you need to get your sunburn checked?

When you get a sunburn, your skin turns red and starts to hurt. Depending on the severity, you can have swelling and blisters. Other worrying symptoms include:

  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Fevers with chills
  • Weakness or fatigue

Having some or all of these symptoms present means you need to pay a visit to your doctor immediately.

If you have been prescribed ointments and other medication to soothe your problem, drop by our retail Pharmacy in Ontario, Canada so our staff can assist you in finding the right products.

Always remember that our Health Center Pharmacy in St. Catharines, Ontario will always have its doors wide open for your convenience. We even have a supply of disposable masks, washable masks, KN95 masks, and hand sanitizers for you to protect yourself from COVID-19. Call us to learn more about our protective and sanitary supplies.
