Wind Burn

Patient

Q: I am currently taking doxycycline for acne and have been on it a month. I got a new patch around 3 days ago. Could the new batch give me an allergic reaction or is it from surfing?I went surfing for 4 hours in 36 degree water with 30 mph. My face got extremely red and swollen. Now 3 days later my face is still swollen and only a little bit better. The redness has faded but swelling not so much. Its mostly around the cheeks. Also my lips got really burned and hurt. What can I do to help the swelling? and will it all go away in a couple more days. P.S. i forgot to wear sunscreen and zinc.

Thanks

Doctor
