I got too much sun today, and I don’t really

Patient: I got too much sun today, and I don’t really have a painful burn, but my skin is pink and tender. I vomited around 20 minutes ago. I’m unsure if the vomiting is sun related or dietary. If sun poisoning, what would you advise?18 yo female

 

 

Symptoms: Sun burn, vomiting, possible dehydration

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.It could be due to sunburn that you could have developed vomiting. Drink plenty of wa ter and apply calamine lotion all over the body for soothing effect.In case the vomiting continues see a physician immediately.Hope this helped.Regards
