It can be tempting to strip off as soon as the sun comes out, but it’s easy to overdo it and end up with sunburn or heat exhaustion. When the levels of water and salt in your body fall, it can lead to nausea, faintness and heavy sweating. If you do overdo it in the sun, here are some useful homeopathic remedies to help you cope with the unpleasant side effects.
Match your symptoms to the remedy
Aconite is for when the redness comes on suddenlyk especially if a cold compress relieves the pain. It’s also useful if you get a strong sudden headache.
Belladonna when the skin is intensely hot and throbbing. You may also have a pusating headache and a hot flushed face.
Cantharis if the burning is more severe and there is blistering, or if it looks like the skin may blister.
Urtica urens for minor burning and itchy skin, or if hives are developing.
Glonoinum may help if you have a pounding headache as if the blood is rushing to your head.
For anyone who suffers from prickly heat, there’s some great homeopathic remedies for Prickly heat which can be tailored to your needs. It’s often caused by warm humid weather and appears like a rash of raised red spots that appear when the sweat glands become blocked, it can sting like crazy! You can buy Sandalwood powder online, which can lower the body temperature. After a cool shower, put on the sandalwood powder just as you would with talcum powder. Or you can mix it into a paste with equal amounts of sandalwood powder and rose water. Apply it to the skin and allow it to dry, then rinse off with cool water. Do this twice a day for a week.
