Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   how can i help you
User :   hi i recently just got a horrible sunburn and two nights ago I started to recieve blisters and they are very painful. I use some solution called blue ice to reduce heat and pain but now I'm using some medicated spray simular to solarcaine I was wondering what else is there to help heal this faster and should I keep the blisters intact or have them released using sterile equipment of course?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   they will usually heal on their own
User :   do you know how long it normally takes because they are on my shoulder and back shoulder blade area
Doctor :   3-4 days
