Got sun burned on face, stomach, and legs. Used aloe vera. Swollen face and red body. Any advice?

I got sun burned on my face, stomach , and legs. My whole body is red, and I ve used aloe vera and taken ibuprofen already, but I don t see much improvement. Body still red, and face is swollen. Specifically the eyes. I can still see, but it looks weird because it s swollen. How do I take that away? That goes away right?!

Thanks for the query,

Its good that you are applying aloe vera,

However aloe vera alone will not help you,

Apply a mild steroid lotion like desonide,

This will help in controlling inflammation.

In day apply some sunscreen.

Also take an antihistamine tablet.

This will give you some relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
