Has anyone every had a sunburn that kind of turns a purple color? I got burned on my legs and it was excruciatingly painful for a couple of days and I put an aloe vera gel that had lidocaine in it on it. It is feeling much better today, but it is kind of a purple color and I was wondering if that is okay or if I should go see a dermatologist. Anyone ever had this?

My mom always used apple cider vinegar but the purple color remained for quite a while as I recall.


I read that cool green tea compresses were helpful for sunburns. Don't remember where I read or saw that. Possibly here? I used it on my daughter's shoulders last month and it really helped. She was not quite to the purple stage though.


Hope you feel (and look not so purple) soon!
