I got a really bad sunburn, which started to peel yesterday. Today I got all sweaty, which made the skin bubble up. I think it was trapped sweat.

I got a really bad sunburn, which started to peel yesterday. Today I got all sweaty, which made the skin bubble up. I think it was trapped sweat.

2nd degree sun burn: If the skin is 'bubbling' like that after an intense sun exposure, then it's probably a 2nd degree burn. This is more serious than just the redness of a 'first degree' sun burn. The integrity of the skin is compromised - so you have to treat it very very carefully. If those areas become filled with pus, the pain worsens or you develop fevers or other worrisome signs- you need to see a doctor. ...Read more

About burns: Scald burns are very frequently full thickness burns. The fact that it has become dark is not a good sign. If it is small (< quarter) in size it wil probably heal. You want to watch for increasing redness around the burn or red streaks up the legs. You should have her evaluated by a general or plastic surgeon. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream is useful. Surgery may be needed. These may be trouble. ...Read more

I had a rash after drinking a few glasses of vodka. Its only on my palms and look /feel like bubbles under the skin. Itching stopped but bubbles remain?

Probably not vodka: You are describing an allergic reaction, but it is very unlikely that vodka is the cause. I would suspect additives to the drink, or food that you had with it. The "bubbles" should go away soon. As long as you are not having difficulty breathing, you an wait it out. It's important to figure out what caused the reaction, though, because next time it can be more severe. ...Read more

Have bubble things under skin on line of where my underwear are. One popped and nothing but clear liquid came out. What is it?
