hi,
You have sunburns so cover your body when you are going out... apply sunscren lotion while going out. coconut oil application in the night. consult your nearest skin specialist.

Hi,thank for query.As your skin is burnt the outer layer is damaged and so it is sensitive.Please avoid sun exposure for some time if possible,apply sun screen lotion with good SPF as per your area.You can apply some moisturizer over the area.Bye and take care.

This past Tuesday, my 3 year old son and I, played in the yard for about two hours. As usual I lathered us in suncreen-except this time, I switched the brand we normally use. Now his entire face is STILL fire red, and is spreading, covering his ears, hot and itches. What can I do to treat it?? I have been using aloe and Auqaphor for babies and nothing is helping so far.

I recently had an excision for a superficial spreading melanoma, that did start growing veritically, from my upper right shoulder on my back. I still have stitches and am waiting for this pathology to determine if the margins are clear. Since the excision I have veins that are becoming darker blue under that right arm pit, shoulder and chest area. Even after lots of sunblock and reapplication I did get a sunburn, however the joint of my shoulder and armpit meet where one of these dark blue veins are I burnt around the vein but did not burn on nor about 1/4-1/2 an inch all around this vein. Is this normal or something I should contact the doctor who did my excision? I don t want to bother him if unnecessary, but has been a week since excision and have one more week till I go back to see him.

i am suffering from severe sunburns on my face and hands. Though I apply sunscreen while going out (SPF 50+) I still get sun burns. I am on treatment for curing sunburn. I was applying triglow cream mixed with a moisturizer during day time as well as night about 5 months back as a treatment for hyperpigmentation. I am worried if this sun burn is a side effect of triglow cream. How long will triglow cream have effect on my skin? When will i stop getting sunburns?
