I have sunburn spots (around one inch on each arm) on both of my arms. I get strong itching sensation quite frequently now. Especially when I get any sun exposure, even with sun screen on. The spots are very dry and sometimes become red. The texture of those spots is also different from the rest of the skin. I have regularly used aloe vera gel on these but it's not helping. I have tried calamine lotion too. What should I do?

For the active lesions. You need to use a steroid cream for short duration. With moisturizer as base cream. Once lesions decrease you hav to use a sunscreen with spf 30.2-3 hrs once during the day UnTil you start sunscreen. Protect your arms from sunlight.

No. Acne or pimples. Due to hormonal changes. Oily skin causes it. Common in adolescent age. May occur in adults also. Food like Oily foods, ice cream, chocolate and sweets increase it. Treatment depends on the grade of pimples or acne. So, please send photos as it's a must to see which grade of pimples or acne for accurate diagnosis and treatment.
