My ankle got sunburnt yesterday today it is twice the size

Customer Question

My ankle got sunburnt yesterday today it is twice the size of the other one I have ordered some aloe vera. My main concern is that the swelling is moving up the leg. I cannot walk on it. The instep is severely swollent. The residential manager has just checked it and feels it needs a visit
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, when did you start using Aloe vera? How severe were any side effects?
Customer: It is being delivered this evening. A friend tried superdrug, and boots they are out of stock
JA: Thanks for that. Have you seen a doctor about the swelling?
Customer: No thats why I am requesting a visit
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: Basiccally my immune system is shot
