Why are there lots of liquid filled bubbles on my upper back/shoulers?

I was at the beach for a few hours last weekend. Got some minor sunburn. Now there's a bunch of tiny liquid filled bubbles on my upper back/shoulders. Is that bad? I can scrape my fingers and burst the bubbles without any pain...it's actually kinda fun. I popped them last night, and now they're back tonight. I hope this fun lasts a while.

you arent doing any more harm to yourself by popping the bubbles,, unlike friction blister where the blister helps protect the new skin underneath, your sunburn blisters are just sweat trapped under a dead layer of skin. OBTW you got more than just a "minor" sunburn if you are getting this type of blister.

ok, thanks for the info. I say minor because I was barely red, and it didn't hurt much.

Yeah- thats 2nd or 3rd degree sunburn. Wear sunscreen- maybe ask Cuda2k about him getting
skin cancer and you'll be convinced.

Next time you go to the beach, rub down first in butter and garlic, and maybe an egg wash. That way your skin will get crispy and golden brown.

Sounds like a Second-Degree Burn.

I'd leave them alone. You don't want to get infections, and removing the fluid will dehydrate you.

That is a nasty sunburn. Try to avoid that in the future.

The future skin cancer will likely not be so painless.

actually, if you did not get much of a sunburn, then I'd suggest you see a dermatologist.
There are conditions that will cause blistering just by exposure to sunlight for a very few minutes. This could be one of those cases.
If on the other hand, it is from a sunburn....start using sunscreen and avoid prolonged exposures during peak hours.

I wasn't in the sun for a few minutes. I was in it for probably 3 or more hours.

Being from Hawaii, you probably just are not used to being out in the sun!

That's exactly why I refuse to sun tan in the nude.

I grew up on the beach and this happened to me a couple of times.. it is not a second degree burn, the blistering is not caused by the burn itself.. like when you burn yourself with an iron. The blistering is caused by the sunburn killing the outermost epidermis. It then looses its ability to pass moisture and the next time you sweat it causes the blisters. Again not the same thing as a true heat burn, or even as a friction blister.

OBTW take the advice on the sun thing. Every member of my family has had a skin cancer of some sort taken off at this point. Sun exposure is like filling a glass with liquid... it may be a slow trickle throughout your life,,, with intermittent spurts of more rapid filling.. like your burn. Eventually, if you do not protect yourself the glass will overfill, and bingo, skin cancer.

What is funny is the most sunburned I've ever gotten was when I was swimming for most of the day in overcast clouds. Though the sun wasn't out... the UV rays were.

I think the bubbles may be filled with your liquified inability to read the posts in this thread and know that you have sweat trapped under a layer of dead skin. or maybe not.
