Swollen reddish eye bags and a red face from sun burn. Burning on the facial skin. Tried aloe and moisturizer. Any suggestions?

Hi I am fourteen years old and I have never had eye bags before, however, two days ago at band camp, I woke up with HUGE puffy swollen red eye bags and a red face from sun burn . I also have some rough patches on my face. I have never had acne before and I have relatively good skin, but I start school in a week and I really don t want to go with my face looking how it does now on the first day of high school. I have tried aloe , which made my skin hurt like it was being burned, and I have tried moisturizer . I also have tried icepacks. It s been 48 hours and I really don t see much of a difference in my face. The redness has gone away somewhat but still my face is peeling and the rough patches burn when I put on aloe and the skin under my eyes is puffy baggy and peeling. Please help ASAP.

Hello and thank you for your query
Continue using ice packs and avoid using any cosmetic which causes burning on the sun burns.
Stay indoors as much as possible.
Before you moe out in sun, dont forget to wear a sunscreen with SPF not less than 15.
Wear full sleeves shirt, use an umbrella and also a pair of goggles.
Protection from sun is the remedy.

In case of any doubt dont hesitate to mail to me.
Take care
