Brief Answer:
Start with cortisone cream, sunscreen & antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Hi
If possible you can upload the pictures under the report section of the site or mail them to YYYY@YYYY as " Attention: Dr Asmeet ".
Meanwhile for burning and sunburn like appearance I recommend my patients to apply cortisone cream on the affected areas twice daily along with a high SPF sunscreen lotion on the entire sun exposed areas at intervals of 3-4 hours during the day time.
I also recommend them to take antihistaminic like tablet Chlorpheniramine 4 mg once or twice daily depending on the intensity of burning.
I hope this helps you.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
