Sunburns are a common occurrence throughout the summers in Massachusetts. If you aren’t careful, you can end up with a painful burn that can sometimes cause a fever and blisters on the skin.
At AFC Urgent Care Methuen, we want you to enjoy your summer as much as possible. That is why we provide walk-in sunburn treatment to all patients who need it. We can also make the best recommendations for you to avoid any sunburns in the future.
Sunburns are common, acute inflammatory responses to the skin being exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR). They range in their severity, but too much exposure over the years can cause conditions such as skin cancer.
Some risk factors of getting sunburned include:
While most sunburns will subside after a few days and can be treated at home with over the counter medicines and remedies, a severe sunburn might need the evaluation of a provider. You should also seek medical attention if you’re experiencing symptoms such as blisters, excessive peeling, chills or fever, or dizziness.
At AFC Urgent Care Methuen, we treat symptoms of sunburns on a walk-in basis. Some of the services we provide include:

Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
