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.

I had severe sunburn a fortnight ago. The peeling has finished but now my skin feels on fire, with shooting pain and constantly itchy. I ve tried lanacane cream and benadryl anti-histamine tablets to no relief. How long will this last and what can I get to help me through... It s driving me insane

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.

Hi Dr, I am a 45 year old male with a history of factor five laden. But have been off my warfarin for more than 3 years on doctor's advice. Haven't had any additional problems in the last few years, however, the last few days I have a sore lower inner thigh, running from under my groin to knee as a red sunburn or rash that is sore to touch (feels bruised). It has grown from a small patch to the knee in the last two days. The muscle also feels sore. I cycle and did so on Fri and Sat (the bruising feeling started Sat morning) I had originally thought the bruising pain was from my young son kicking my thigh with his shoes on but it seems to be getting worse. Other than that I feel no other symptoms. Can you give me some advice? Thanks

I have what I believe is a brown recluse spider bite on my right shoulder next to my armpit. This happened early Friday morning. I developed a bright red rash like a really bad sunburn Friday night all over my body. I went to the ER Saturday because I was dizzy, had nausea, and red. They prescribed meds for allergic reaction. It started to lesson in redness but this morning. It was just as bright red and has stayed that way all day. I now have purplish spots on my stomach and what look to be blisters on the left side of my stomach.
