Hi,

As per your query, you have sunburns on the face which can lead to redness and blisters on face due to damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you apply cold compresses 2-3 times a day or wash your face with cold water. You should drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. You should apply petroleum jelly to the affected area. If the condition doesn't get better in 2-3 days then consult a dermatologist for proper examination and rule out causes like a skin infection or allergic reaction. The doctor may prescribe steroid ointment, antibiotics (clindamycin) or vitamin C supplement for quick recovery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
