Comfort: The extent of the burn is the critical factor here. It is possible to sustain a serious burn from an unprotected day in the sun. If it is mild to moderate, blistering is not common, if that is the case, a topical anesthetic spray could lessen the discomfort. If significant blistering it is a bad burn and those blisters may become infected. A trip to an md would be beneficial.
