Simply visit us when you need medical care or take advantage of our online appointment scheduling system.

When to Seek Medical Treatment for a Sunburn

While most sunburns can be remedied at home with some soothing aloe gel, noticeably severe or extensive burns should be examined by a medical professional. It’s a good idea to visit Fast Track Urgent Care for treatment if your sunburn:

  • Causes large blisters on the legs, arms, or abdomen
  • Causes blisters on the genitals, hands, or face
  • Becomes significantly swollen
  • Shows signs of infection, which may include pus or red streaks extending from the area
  • Is accompanied by nausea, low-grade fever, or headache
  • Worsens despite at-home care

When to Call 911

Second- or third-degree sunburns are often associated with severe dehydration and heat-related illnesses such as heat stroke, which are medical emergencies. Call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room for sunburn treatment if:

  • Sunburnt skin resembles leather, becomes numb, or turns white
  • A fever higher than 103 degrees Fahrenheit develops
  • Confusion, dizziness, noticeably cold skin, or loss of consciousness occurs
