How long does a sunburn last?

I have a terrible sunburn.


Answer by  whoareyou (3483)

It depends on the severity of the burn. Typical it will go away within a couple days, but if it's very severe it may take a couple weeks.

A sunburn will last from five to seven days. If you aren't allergic to aloe, spread some directly on the burn to ease it.

A sunburn can last for 1-2 weeks before your skin totally recover. It will go to different stages. 1st-3rd day is the painful and burning part. The rest of the days will be the time where your skin rejuvenates and shed a new one.

Depending on the degree of the sunburn it will last any where from three to five days. If you treat it with Aloe Vera and salt baths it may go away sooner. Make sure that you keep your skin moisturized at all times and try and reduce the heat from your body.

It will probably hurt for a few days but you can soothe the pain with Aloe Vera gel. You will have the sunburn for a week or so and then it should fade into a tan or just go away. Next time you are outside use a spray or a lotion to protect yourself from the sun.

depending on how fair skinned you are... it can last anywhere from 2- 4 days... most of the time severity deprends on how long it will last.

Depending how bad your sunburn is, and whether or not you put on sunscreen. It can take up to a week, but the pain will decrease and when your skin starts healing it will start peeling. Mean time, lots of aloe vera and lotion on your skin
