Patient Comments: Sunburn - Symptoms

What symptoms did you have with a sunburn?

Comment from: Elaine, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: August 13

I have an after effect from a sunburn on my neck where the skin is dry and red (extremely noticeable) after sweating or after a short period of sun contact. It is like a red bruise, and it keeps getting larger.
