Thanks for writing to us.

Your doctor might be right with his diagnosis of sunburn . Another possibility could be contact dermatitis due to exposure to any allergen or use of new cosmetics etc. if there has been an exposure to sun for prolonged time than we could think of all these symptoms bein sun induced

To treat the same

Use a good sunscreen, avoid sun as much as possible

Do cold water compresses

Apply a steroid cream like mometasone twice in a day

Take oral antihistamine like cetirizine

She might require a course of oral steroids for the same a doctor's prescription will be required.

Hope that helped.

Take care
