Place skin: immediately under cold water. How bad is the burn? What area of the body is it on? What percentage of you is burned? What is your status for tetanus shot?

Simple Care best: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected.

Sun damage persists: Sun damage to DNA can persist forever, long after burned skin appears healed. Epidermis (top layer ) completely sheds about every 30 days. So in a month a sunburned skin has completely peeled and regrown.
