Do not use ice as this can injure already injured skin. Cool water soaks can help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring. Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps. ...Read more

I have an extreme sunburn. I am on roacutane, 20mg. A week ago I was burnt, skin blistered. Now skin is leathery and started peeling. Is this normal?
Normal yes: Unfortunately Accutane sun sensitizes to quite a degree and makes any burn far worse. We recommend minimal sun exposure when our patients are on it, and then only with significant sunscreen. The peeling will be worse as the burn was worse. Bad for long term skin aging and also skin cancer risk in older age - always avoid burns at all costs. ...Read more

I had a sunburn and I started peeling it kind of stopped but some of my skin is tan and with white spots will it stay 4 ever?
Not likely: Sunburns with peeling often will leave the skin with pigment alterations. Unless the sunburn was very severe, it is unlikely that the pigment discrepancy will be permanent. However, to give your skin the best chance to return to normal, please wear spf 30+ sunscreen to the areas. Any sunlight exposure on skin with pigment alterations will make it more likely to be long lasting or permanent. ...Read more
