    I think I got blisters

    Man, I woke up and my sunburn is peeling in some places, and in other places aka my nose and the cheeks right under the eye. Its peeling brown stuff, and there are tiny little soft brown things. I think they are blisters. I had horrible ones on my shoulders once, and they scarred my shoulders. I don't want scarring on my face, any recommended treatments?

    I'm trying to figure out the best course of action to prevent scars. They aren't super bad blisters, they are small. Some places say to put on bacitrin antibiotic, and some say hydrocortisone cream. I don't know if I should cover it with gauze or not. Thats another thing different sites disagree on. Some say cover it, some say don't. So, I'm thinking Ill but antibiotics on it at least.

    100 % Aloe gel mixed with Vit. E oil. It will speed healing and help to reduce any scarring.

    This is what I use also. Aloe and Liquid vitamin E. Works well. And stay out of the sun for a few days.
    Just Do It..

    Most of the sites told me to put aloe on the sunburn. But on the blisters to put bacitrin and nothing else.
