I was in the heat all day. I have a small sunburn. But now my right arm hurts, and fingertips tingle like I hurt it when I did not. Type 1 diabetic?

Tingling from edema: Bing in the heat all day with sunburn suggests some dehydration possible, and drinking water is key.

One would suggest elevation of the arm to decrease swelling, squeezing a nerf ball, 20 min ice and 20 min off. With decrease swelling, the pain should subside. Type I diabetic risks infection ...Read more
