Kids love nothing more than spending lots of time outdoors in the sun, especially during summer vacation. If you forget the sunscreen, even once, you may have a kid with a nasty sunburn. Sunburns are quite painful, but there are ways you can help soothe the pain for your child.
Before we discuss treatment of sunburns, we want to strongly recommend always putting sunscreen on your children, even if they’ll only be out in the sun for a short time. Frequent and severe sunburns can increase the likelihood of skin cancer when your children become adults.
Here at Firestone Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we want all of our little patients to have a safe summer, free of harmful UV Rays, which can cause burns and discomfort.
For more tips on your child’s health – dental & otherwise – or to make an appointment at our Firestone, CO office, please give us a call today.
