Hi doctor,

Do I need to visit a doctor for small sunburn blisters?



Welcome to

To help you better, I need to know a few more details.

  • How many lesions do you have? Also, tell me their duration and size.
  • Are the lesions itchy?
  • In which part of the body is it present?

If you could send a photo, it will be helpful.
