"Sometimes your knight in shining armor ...is just a douchebag in tin foil!!"
So, I'm a fair skinned freckled redhead....and yes....I should have known better. My BFF and I were hanging out at her pool and thought...."Ah....an hour or so without sunblock won't kill us...." Famous last words....
4 bottles of wine later.... we forgot what sunblock was.....
So...rightfully so....I burned the front of my body.... it hurt for a couple of days but faded slowly. Well a few days ago....the peeling began....DAMN. That's how it goes with us fair skinned people.... burn...peel....burn....peel! Well, now....I have what looks like a bunch of red bumps and raised skin almost like a rash on my shins where my skin peeled! They came out of nowhere! I don't know if its sun poisoning, an allergic reaction, or what!!! It looks awful!
I've been using aloe vera gel and hydrocortisone cream on it. My doctor said it should go away on its own but to call him Monday if not..... UGH...
WTH. I know that when I went to my annual appointment in February that I had a Vitamin D deficiency. I have to take medication for it now. And, I embarrassingly forgot to take my pill for a couple of weeks. This is gonna sound like a stupid question, but could I be having an adverse reaction to an overdose of the sun? Is that a possibility since I have a Vitamin D deficiency anyways?
I don't know.....just curious if anyone has experienced this before. I've had sun poisoning before on my shoulders as a kid....but the bumps showed up the same day as the burn....not weeks later.....
This is just so bizarre..... and annoying....they itch like you would NOT believe!!!!!
