2. Blistering and peeling of the skin
It is not unusual for the skin to peel after developing sunburn. Once the skin that has been damaged by the sun heals, it peels off, revealing a new, fresh layer of skin. However, it takes time for the peeling associated with sunburn to develop and usually. With sun poisoning, on the other hand, the skin can start peeling almost immediately. First, the skin will develop blister bumps. These blisters are filled with fluid and are whitish in color.
They can also be extremely itchy or intensely painful. The blisters can also pop and cause the skin to peel. When that happens, there is a risk of infection, which can cause even more damage to the skin and result in further complications that could damage the entire body. If you develop blisters on your skin after spending time in the sun, try applying cold compresses, taking an oatmeal bath, and applying aloe vera gel. If that doesn’t work, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
