Severe sunburn on the head and forehead. Swelling in the forehead spreading to eyes and cheeks. Any help?

I recently received a severe sunburn on my head and forehead . After my forehead swelled up, all the fluid went around my eyes and eyelids, and to my cheeks. The swelling is now starting to subside, but I have a pocket of fluid in the inside corner of both eyes that doesn t seem to want to go away. Any suggestions? I ve tried cold packs.

in severe case oral steroid can be given.
you should apply mild steroid cream on affected area ,on swelling apply antibiotic cream.
it is gradually subside,good sign.
it is better to consult dermatologist if problem persist.
do not wash your skin frequently as it will make your skin more sensitive.
use good sunscreen 20 minutes before going outside.
