Thanks for writing to us.
You have devoloped sun burns.Occurance of blisters is quite common in such cases.Since blister is ruptured apply antibiotic cream over it.Once the lesion heals start applying a good sunscreen.You can apply a mild steroid in case there is itching or redness.Use loose cotton clothes covering whole body.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
