Posted on Wed, 20 Jul 2016
Question: Hi there, I got a bad sunburn about 4 weeks ago on my legs. The sunburn pain part was gone in a few days but the redness is still there. It is not as red but has not returned back to my normal color. Is that normal?

Brief Answer:
It is normal for skin to take some time in getting back to normal colour

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I can understand your concern but after any inflammation including sun burn skin takes time to return back to normal skin colour.
So it is absolutely normal for your skin to be slightly red at this stage.
