Even when we do our best to prevent sunburn, it happens. We might miss a spot when applying sunscreen, have a hard time keeping up with reapplying when kids are active or in and out of the water, get caught off guard by a really sunny day, or just flat out forget.
If your child gets a sunburn, here’s what you should do.
If your child has cramping, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, or sleepiness that doesn’t get better once you get them inside and cooled off, call your doctor right away.
