Customer Question

Somehow, my head and neck became badly sunburned on an overcast day yesterday. I've applied after sun and Sudacrem since then but it's leaking yellow fluid whi I've read is plasma. 24 hours on, I've read that no creams should be used. Perhaps too late but, do I apply cream for sunburn or not?

Hi there,

I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you with your question.

Please don't apply any more cream, just cover the leaking skin with sterile pads.

Please let your GP check the wounds tomorrow and your medication, to. Maybe you take substances like St. John's Worth that increases the sensitivity for sun.

I wish you a soon recovery!
