Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
My son has terrible eczema. On top of this, he is also sunburned. Now he is very itchy; we’re putting hydrocortisone on his skin and that is helping a little. Is there anything else we should do?
A: If the sunburn is severe, please contact a burn center or consult a physician. If the eczema is not severe, a good remedy for mild sunburn is an immediate application of plain yogurt. It serves to cool and moisturize the skin while removing excess heat from the skin.
