Picture of Sunburn (First-Degree Burns)
Sunburns result from damage due to excess exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. First-degree burns cause pain and redness, but the damage is superficial, affecting only the outermost layer of skin. First-degree sunburns are mild and can be easily treated at home. Although anyone can get a sunburn, those who have fair skin, freckles, blue eyes, and blonde or red hair are at greatest risk.
