Chest sunburn, peeling, red and dry skin. What is it?

I got a pretty bad sunburn on my chest the other day, and now it s peeling. Under one spot the skin is still very red, dry and sensitive to the touch. It s only one little patch and the other areas of skin that have peeled have already regained moisture, and feel normal. So, I m not really sure what this is. Do you have any clue what it may be, or what could help?
