My daughter must have gotten too much sun.

I don't know how it happened. We were only out about an hour and a quarter, and it wasn't overly hot. There was a breeze and some cloud cover. But she's listless and feels warm to the touch, and she doesn't want to eat. Other than a cool bath, is there anything else I can do to make her feel better?

  • i have had this
    lethargy related to sun exposure without burn
    normally after a winter spent doing nothing
    if she isnt better after a good meal and nights rest then worry, otherwise relax...

    but you said warm to the touch- are you sure she isnt a little burnt?

  • She was wearing sunscreen and she doesn't have a sunburn.

    But she's warm to the touch?? Does she have fever then?? Better check... Then treat accordingly. If no fever she probably just needs some fluids and some sleep!!

  • She might be fighting the beginning of a cold. Hopefully some rest will make her feel better tomorrow.

  • Wel, there was no visible sunburn at least, according to her dad,, and she had sunscreen on. She drank some water and had a bath, then wanted to go right to bed. She didn't want to eat dinner, but she'd had a tortilla and some cheese right when we got home, and a Nutrigrain bar later. She went to bed without a fuss, so I know she's tired. She was just above ninety-nine on the thermometer, so nothing scary.
