Small bumps all over my burnt skin after sunburn. Is that normal healing phase?

Inflammation: After a sunburn, there is inflammation which then causes swelling. Pockets of swelling are the little bumps you feel. If the sunburn is severe, then we develop blisters, with top layer of skin is separated and becomes fluid filled. For this reason, if you knew you had too much sun, taking Ibuprofen and applying aloe immediately can potentionally reduce its severity.

I would guess they r: Small blisters and the skin is sloughing off. Make sure you keep moisturized, and aloe vera with soothe the skin. Don't pop blisters or pick off dead skin, and if not healing well, see doctor

Dry hair: Shampoos are more drying than soap as they remove more hair oils. If you use shampoos it's important to follow with a hair conditioner to restore oils for your hair and scalp. A skilled beautician can evaluate your hair and advise you about its status and give you advice on your hair care and hair care products.

Forehead lump: This swelling, which is not blistering, is unusual after a sunburn, but it appears to be a collection of fluid (edema) and may be akin to Sun poisoning. Apply cool compresses to see if the edema recedes. See your physician if not improved.

Maybe: A Bartholin's abscess that forms just inside the vagina. Be seen and if your doctor agrees, it will need drainage and follow up care. All the best.

You need, an exam: We cannot, diagnose by your description. You should be seen by a physician. In the meantime, a hot bath may help, if you have inflamed hair follicles. This may provide comfort until your examination.

Consultation advised: Would really need to see the rash to give advice. You can upload images of your rash as well as the history of your present problem with an online consultation here at Health Tap Several images of the involved areas in sharp focus and including closeups and wide angle would be helpful. If you choose an INBOX consultation you need to make yourself available to answer doctors questions.
