Save my sunburn!

 
I got a really bad sunburn, and now I am seeing bumps and weird dots on my sunburn. They hurt, and I'm scared that I seriously damaged my skin. I don't know much about skin cancer, but is there any way I could have gotten it from sunburn?

 

If the bumps on your sunburn are blisters, you may have second-degree sunburn, which is deeper than regular, first-degree sunburns and can take longer to heal. The blisters may be painful, but they should heal along with the rest of your skin. Though it may be tempting, don’t pop them—it can lead to infection. Using an aloe gel and taking ibuprofen will reduce your skin’s swelling and pain.

 

Scaly patches of sunburn, though, could be early signs of various forms of skin cancer. If the bumps on your skin are on your face, neck or hands or if any of the bumps are flaky, you should see a doctor right away. A doctor will be able to treat your skin before the condition worsens. Small, red bumps may also be a sign of rosacea, a less-serious, redness-inducing skin disorder (also treatable by your doc).

 

Unless you’re positive that the bumps are blisters, your best bet is to visit the doctor. Only a doc can properly diagnose what’s up with your skin and help you become healthy and sunburn-free again. Good luck, girlie!
