Thank you for writing to ATD.
It is good that you are considering seeing a Doctor. He will examine you and reach a diagnosis to confirm that you have sunburn. Here are a few things you can do:
Drink lots of water
Have a lot of fruits and vegetables
Use a skin cream like calamine lotion
Use ice to numb and reduce the pain
The Doctor will prescribe you skin creams to help soothe the skin.
Wishing you a quick recovery. All the best.
