How to distinguish between sunburn and an allergic reaction?
Differentiating a sunburn from an allergic reaction: guide and solutions
Sunburns and allergic reactions are two common skin conditions that may present similar symptoms, leading to confusion in their diagnosis. It is essential to distinguish them correctly to adopt the appropriate treatment. Druide Bio, an expert in organic skin care, offers effective solutions to prevent and treat these skin issues. In this article, we will help you identify the two and treat them with natural products.
Understanding and identifying sunburns
Sunburns result from overexposure to the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays or an artificial source of these rays. They generally manifest as intense redness of the skin, warmth to the touch, and a burning sensation. The symptoms can vary in severity, ranging from mild pain to an intense heat sensation and the formation of blisters. These symptoms usually appear a few hours after sun exposure and may be accompanied by other systemic signs like fever and fatigue.
Recognizing allergic reactions
A skin allergic reaction, also known as contact dermatitis, occurs when the skin comes into contact with a substance to which it is hypersensitive. The symptoms can vary depending on the allergen in question and individual sensitivity. Allergic reactions can cause redness, intense itching, swelling, hives, or blisters. Unlike sunburns, allergic reactions can manifest immediately after contact with the allergen, or several hours to days later.
