Dr. Debra Price, Dermatologist with Baptist Health South Florida, says in case of getting a sunburn the important thing is to put a moisturizer on your skin, to take an anti-inflammatory agent like aspirin or Advil, and to put some cold soaks on your skin to take the heat out.

“We also have in our offices these special LED lights that can reverse some of the inflammation from the Sun, and may reverse some of the damage that is caused by a sunburn, but I think the key thing is to prevent sunburn, because it puts you at risk for melanoma,” she points out.
