What To Do If Feet Turn Purple And Hurt Badly After Severely Sunburnt?

I was sunburned 1 week ago tomorrow severely on both of my legs and the top of my feet. The swelling has subsided but every time I stand my feet turn purple and hurt terribly. I am using silvadene cream, ibuprofen, elevating my feet and cold compresses and the pain is still there. Is there any more I can do?

Hi,

The lesions on legs and feet are not likely to be sunburn but something else. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment.

It may be either irritant or allergic contact dermatitis or else. After a thorough examination and investigations, your doctor would give perfect treatment.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel,
