Burning sensation on thigh due to sunburn. Weakness. What is this problem?

Was outside this weekend at the shooting range. While sitting waiting for my turn, heat from the sun gave me a severe burning sensation on my thighs. After getting home, I found a sunburn look in a pattern of an ironing board without the cover on my legs. This happened before while at a football game in the heat of the day, which I became so weak I almost passed out. What is this problem?

Thanks for posting your query.
You have got a sunburn on your thigh, however Sun sensitivity due to allergy should be ruled out.
ake frequent cool showers or baths.Apply soothing lotions that contain aloe vera to sunburned areas. Topical steroids may also help with sunburn pain and swelling. If you feel mild fever and a headache then take plenty of water to manage dehydration.Use sunblocks while going out.
You should also visit dermatologist to rule out if you have sun sensitivity.
Hope it helps.
Take care!
