When applying sunblock, do not skimp on the feet and ankles! Your feet can easily become sunburned and for those that are at the beach or poolside, know that running along the sand and seawater exposure can remove applied sunblock. Make sure to reapply as directed by your foot and ankle specialist in Manhattan, NY. Remember to cover the tops and bottom of feet as sunbathing can allow sun rays to hit any area of the foot.

Mistakes Happen

When your feet are sunburned, remove them from additional sun exposure. Remember to:

  • Cool the skin with cold compresses and avoid harsh soaps.
  • Moisturize damp skin with lotion that is not oil-based.
  • Hydrate with water and water-rich foods.
  • Reduce inflammation with NSAIDs and a topical 1 percent OTC cortisone cream or aloe vera.
  • Seek medical treatment with blistering and signs of fever, chills, or confusion.
