Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,

Most likely it is a sunburn from being out too long in the sun. I suggest you to use a soothing lotion e.g calamine lotion. As the skin heals over the next few days, the skin would exfoliate. You may use a moisturizer if there is too much peeling or desquamation

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Kakkar S., Dermatologist
