Anyone that uses homeopathy will know how effective and gentle it is. Did you know that there are some homeopathic remedies that can help with sunburn or any kind of burn? I thought it might be helpful to list them below especially as the summer seems to have officially arrived:-
|Arnica||If there is any shock around having the burn then take Arnica first. 30 or 200c. Take hourly up to 2 doses.|
|Urtica Urens||This is a good remedy for prickly heat or if the sunburn is mild with stinging and a prickly feeling. Take 30c every hour. This is also available in a cream.|
|Cantharis||This remedy should be considered for painful and blistering sunburn. It can also be taken for any type of burn. Take 30c every 30 mins.|
|Causticum||This remedy is for severe 3rd degree burns. Take 30c every 30 mins.|
|Calendula Cream||For mild sunburn. This can be really soothing.|
As with all homeopathic remedies, as soon as symptoms start to improve they should be STOPPED. You can also make a homeopathic solution by putting 1 small homeopathic pillule into water and shaking it each time if in a bottle or stirring if in a glass and sipping every 30 minutes (remember to shake or stir each time).
Remember it is always best to avoid midday sun and always wear a sunscreen.
