    Sunburn

    So, uh, at what point would it be wise to seek medical attention for a sunburn?

    I can't help but feel like a bitch right now, but this is some ridiculous pain here. Worked on a car for 4 straight hours yesterday in a cloudless 90+ degree summer day without a shirt OR sunscreen with my back facing the sun the entire time... I'm a fucking dumbass.

    Within four hours my skin turned from a very pale red to a cherry red. It started to feel better last night as I applied aloe to it often... well that feeling is gone. I've started to get nice and bubbly all over my back, and cold showers feel like scalding hot water while hot showers actually make it feel cold.

    How long do these things usually last? I don't usually get sunburns because I'm not usually this much of a retard.

    I got sunburn a while ago after a fishing trip. No hat or sunscreen and before I even made it home my face was red like a beetroot lol, I was so embarassed to go into work and copped a lot of shit. My face was red for like a week, and my nose took the longest to heal and go back to normal, everyone was calling me rudolph haha.

    I hope yours clears up soon, must be very unpleasant. Is there like clear puss shit weeping out from the affected area (sorta like sweat), this is what happened to me lol?

    sounds like borderline 2nd degree. keep in mind that 2nd degree usually involves bubbling of the skin immediately. if yours appeared the next day, it's bad-- but probably not as severe as true 2nd degree.

    Just FYI people

    You can sunburn, and sometimes even worse, in overcast conditions versus full sun.

    Sorry to hear, I got very badly burned this season working outside no protection. Back was toast. The pain will be rivaled by the excruciating itch for a few weeks. Use lots of Ocean Potion moisturizing lotion. It's the only lotion that would ease my itch. I was crawling up the walls.

    Trying to stay out of the sun, but the pain is excruciating. I have no headache, fever, dizzyness, and I can pretty much do all my normal activities.

    I'm calling off work today though. I can not... CAN NOT... wear a shirt.

    I speak from an expert point of view also. I have been burned bad long ago and I know better. Normally wearing sunblock. One day I worked on trenching around the new service garage and didn't realize (with my shirt off) that 4 hours had passed, right in the afternoon sunny time. Burned real bad. Hadn't been burnt that bad for 20+ years. Retard. Now ANY time I am going to spend any aprecaible time out, cutting grass, working on anything etc I 50SPF everything and wear my new nifty sun hat. You know, with the draw strings, flat round top with the nice large rim all around. Keeps that sun out my face.
