- What’s the difference between a mild to moderate and a severe sunburn?
- The first symptoms of a sunburn usually appear within a few hours after too much exposure to UV light from sunshine or artificial sources, such as sunlamps. Your skin turns pink or red, feels warm or hot to the touch and/or hurts. With a severe sunburn, you can have severe pain, develop swelling and blisters, have a headache, fever, chills and/or fatigue. In case of a severe sunburn, you should always seek medical attention immediately. If you have any questions about the severity of you sunburn, consult your doctor promptly.
