Dear customer

Thank you for attaching the three pictures.I have seen them all.

The pictures you have sent & the symptoms you have described is most likely due to sun burn/ sun allergy.

Following is recommended for you now:

If still after this,the symptoms persists.then you need to make an appointment with your doctor as prescription oral medications will then be required accordingly.Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

  • If your skin is not blistering, moisturizing cream may be applied to relieve discomfort.

  • Place wet, cold wash rags on the burn.

  • Topical steroids (such as 1% hydrocortisone cream) also help with sunburn pain,tenderness and swelling.

  • Dissolve 1 packet of burow solution in 1 pint of water. Soak a soft clean cloth in it. Gently wring out the cloth and apply to the sunburned area for 15-20 minutes. Change or refresh the cloth and solution every 2-3 hours. Also apply Silver sulfadiazine (1% cream, Thermazene).This will help you greatly and provides soothing affect.

  • To get relief from pain,take tab.Ibuprofen 400 mg twice day.All these medications are available at counter without prescription & will help you greatly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

me feeling sick yesterday most likely is from having to much sun? Cause yesterday even with the bad sunburn I went to the zoo but I wore jeans and made sure I covered the sunburnt areas
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Cause I'm more concerned on why I felt so sick last night.

More then a sun burn,this can be a sun allergy.

Also there is another possibility of skin disease known as urticaria.A hypersensitivity reaction (similar to an allergy) occurs in the skin, causing inflammation. The inflammation causes the skin to become reddish & itchy.

As you went to the zoo,possibility of urticaria/allergy from some plant or animal dendrite or anything there can cause this.

So along with above described medications,I advise you to also take an anti allergic pill such as tab.Benadryl.

This will cure the rash,redness,itching & other symptoms completely.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Dr.Josh

Here are some details. It's been around 5-6 weeks since it first started appearing. The rashes are found at the webbing of my fingers, along the inside of my fingers, on the palm of my hands and the antecubitis of my left arm. The rashes are red spots or blotches. The larger ones are almost ring-like (brighter on the edges with less redness in the center). The get brighter and more noticeable after exercise and coming out of a warm shower. They don't itch or flake. And they seem to be expanding in size and spreading. I've already tried hydrocortisone and Aveno moisturizer cream. I've started to apply Caladryl, though I can't tell if it's working yet. … read more
