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