severe sunburn ,blisters draining yellowish fluid, lots of pain
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 8 years ago
The best thing to do is see a doctor about this. In the meantime, as much fluid as you can drink, cold baths, antihistamines and antiinflammatories like ibuprofen can help. You're in danger of dehydration and, possibly, infection of the open blisters.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
