What is a mild burn or sunburn?

Mild burns, or first-degree burns, affect only the outer layer of the skin, causing redness, minor swelling, and pain. They usually heal within a week without long-term damage, but prompt cool compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers can provide relief. Sunburns are a specific type of mild burn caused by excessive UV radiation exposure, leading to skin discoloration and pain. Prevention is crucial, involving sunscreen, protective clothing, and avoiding peak sun hours. Aloe vera and cool compresses can help soothe sunburnt skin.
