There can be possibility of Sunburn hypersensitivity in yourself. The only precaution you must follow is not to touch, pinch pop or squeeze any of them other wise it can get infected and can cause complications. You can apply hydrocortisone cream and can take by mouth the antihistamine benadryl.
Keep your legs elevated and put a pillow below your legs at night time.
