Sunburn Treatment in West Orange, NJ
Sunburns are common, acute inflammatory responses to the skin being exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR).
Some risk factors of getting sunburned include:
Duration of exposure
Height of the sun – greatest exposure is midday, around noon
Lack of protective sunscreen or clothing
Lighter skin pigmentation
Taking medications that can heighten the risk of sunburn
While most sunburns are normal and heal easily with home treatment, a severe sunburn might need the evaluation of a physician. Some signs you should bring to the attention of a physician if you have a sunburn include blistering, excessive peeling, chills, fever, or dizziness.

Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life.

If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
