How do you treat sunburn blisters on your nose?


Answer by  windaloft (6)

If blisters are unbroken, gently apply a small amount of aloe gel and protect. When blisters break, if area is "weeping," protect from bacteria by lightly applying antibacterial ointment, cover with bandaid/gauze. Once the area is dry, apply aloe gel, leave open to air, and protect from further sun damage.

You can treat sunburn blisters on your nose the same way you would treat sunburn on your skin. Usually if you put aloe on it, in a couple days it should clear up. If not I would go to the doctor for cream.

Be careful when placing products on your nose because you are close to the eyes and inside of the nose. Dab a small amount of baby diaper ointment on the affected areas. A little aloe vera may also help. There are some over the counter treatments available,too.

If blisters are not open and wetting, then gently apply aloe and cover to protect. If the blisters are open and weeping, then you want to apply an anti-bacterial aointment ond cover, once dry aply aloe and leave open to air, avoid more sun exposure.

The treatment is symptomatic. Put sunscreen on your nose in the sun to prevent further sun damage. Any sort of soothing moisturizing lotion will help with the pain and sensitivity. Largely, though, you have to wait for the skin and pain fibers to grow back. Don't pop the blisters either; you may get an infection.

There are many sprays and lotions on the market that will give pain relief to a sunburn. Just try to let the burn heal without getting another burn on top of it. After a few days the sunburn will start to peel and heal. If you have severe pain or notice any signs of infection, see your doctor.

Don't pop the blister. Soak a gauze in 2 tablespoons water in a pint of cool waterPlace over blister for about 30 minutes a day. If blister does pop, apply some antibacterial cream. If you notice signs of infection, go to your doctor to get it checked out.

There are several good answers above; use aloe vera, etc. BUT, avoid exposure to sunlight. It will hurt. Use wide brimmed hats until the sunburn has healed. As soon as the blisters have healed over, use sun screen to reduce more burning..
