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

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
