considering your data, the process of healing might take another few days to become healed. Next time, make sure that you use the proper sun protection and sunscreens PRIOR to exposing yourself to the sun.

The peeling skin suggests that the damaged skin is lifting off. Be careful to protect this delicate area from the sun now that it is injured. This sounds like a mild sunburn, but it is annoying and should be preventable with sunblock and a hat.
