Is Drinking A Lot More Water Good For My Bad Sunburn
Not particularly.: Drinking a lot of water will make you pee more. If your sunburn is oozing, you do need to replace that water loss, but not much is needed to do that. Treat your sunburn from the outside, with cool wet dressings and an antiseptic ointment like silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) or bionect. And next time, apply a good sunscreen lotion (spf ~50) when you go outside. ...Read more
Sun burn: Human skin can be burned by exposure to heat. There are 3 kinds of burns: first degree, where the skin is red. Second degree, where there are blisters, and third degree, where there is damage to flesh. A sun burn is a 1st degree burn, and while drinking water is good, it will not help your sun burn. Use cool compresses, and a moisturizer and a Hydrocortisone cream, and avoid further heat. ...Read more

Thanks for asking!: Drinking water is very good for the body and what happens with a sun burn is it helps to hydrate the skin and allow the tissue to become more plumb.

See your doctor: If you have fatty liver, i strongly suspect you are drinking more than a "few, " — or that term means something else to you than it does to me.

Whether the fatty liver is from obesity or drinking alcohol, more alcohol will only make it worse, and can lead to scarring, cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer. See your dr. ...Read more
I went down my slide with water but after I got sunburn and I have black dots in my butt what should I do!
I just found my 17 year old daughter soaking in a bathtub water with Clorox. She wants to remove sunburns. Is it safe?
Safe but silly: The diluted bleach will not lighten her tan. There are skin bleaches but they have to be used very judiciously or else you get splotchy results. Her suntan will naturally lighten during the winter months when sun exposure is lower. And if she doesn't want to be so tanned in the future she should use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. ...Read more

My boyfriend got sunburn on his back starting to blister what should he do nothing helps not aloe vera stuff with lidocaine or cold water?
Sunburn : Sounds like he got a second degree burn. You are doing all the right stuff but burns just take time to heal. You could have him take Vit C 1000 mg 4-6 times throughout H&R day as that helps burns to heal, also if you know anyone who does Reiki energy treatment that could be of benefit. This seems to work better the earlier in the treatment but really helps to cool it down and help with the pain ...Read more

That's a lot of h20-: -but it depends on heat you work in, how demanding it is, and how much you sweat.

How many litres of water we should take daily ideally? Is drinking water just before going to bed at night is good/bad for health?
WATER INTAKE: It's not what goes in that's most important, it's what volume of urine you make. A non-stone forming person with normal heart should make 1-1.5 liters of urine per 24 hr. If you're a stone former this # is 2-2.5l/24 hrs. To prevent stone formation. Hot days will take more and inactive days will take less. When you drink it only determines when it will come out. ...Read more
How bad for your health are sodas? And what's a healthy or at least sort of okay replacement for soda? I already drink lots of water.
None: There is no soda on the market that is healthy. None of them have any nutritional value — they are either sugar water or water with chemicals acting as artificial sweeteners. They also contain salt and acids which in high quantities and years of consumption can lead to high blood pressure, kidney disease, and teeth ; bone erosion. The best replacement is water followed by limited amts of juice. ...Read more
Perhaps: The answer is enough. Most people do not have problem drinking a little more water than needed but in extreme cases (if you are drinking gallons of water daily) water intoxication can occur since extreme load of water can unbalance your body's electrolytes (sodium, potassium.) . In general, the body can sense your water need. As in nearly almost anything in life, moderation is the best answer. ...Read more
Lots!: Water removes the toxins from our body and keeps us healthy and fresh, keeps skin healthy, prevents lots of diseases and lots more! ...Read more
Your preference: There's little science here. Drink as much as you need to not be thirsty, and a few more glasses -- helps get rid of the salt that our diet is often loaded with. Extreme water drinking can render a person electrolyte depleted but this is difficult. If you have unexplained thirst, best get appropriate labs drawn. ...Read more

Drink little water during the day but at night I drink about 2 litres while chilling out. Is this good or bad?
I believe on a usual day we need 1 liter of water per day and on very hot days we need 2 to3 liters per day, drinking too much water can lead to water intoxication which can cause confusion, seizures, coma and death due to low sodium etc
at night drinking so much water can keep you up, especially if you are gulping down huge quantities of water. ...Read more
