I got a sunburn 3 weeks ago today My chest

Patient : I got a sunburn 3 weeks ago today. My chest and upper arms have already peeled, still peeling a little bit, but now my leg has little water blisters and is still red/purple. I have pale skin, and it was the first time I got a sunburn in a couple of years. I was applying sunscreen every hour the day I got the burn. Why is my leg just blistering now, and why is it still red/purple?
Symptoms:  Red/purple leg sunburn 3 weeks old, water blisters
