Ankles swollen after sunburn

Common Questions and Answers about Ankles swollen after sunburn


Avatar f tn I messed up my knee and foot on the same leg and the next day i got sunburned from the knees down. After i got sunburned my feet and ankles swelled to double thier normal size. Has anyone else ever had this happen. The injured foot is deffinatly worse. The other one is starting to go down but it still bothers me that my feet look like balloons.
Avatar n tn I also noticed both of my ankles (around the bone) was a little swollen when I got home. Today they are not as bad. I was wondering if swollen joints can be a symptom of lyme..I haven't heard much about it. I was also a little dizzy and slightly "out of it" that night. I must have walked a good 5 miles and my calfs were tight when I woke up this morning. I got a little sunburn on my legs and those areas tingled more than usual. Strange stuff!
Avatar n tn All because I failed to apply sun screen! Swollen ankles spread to the feet. My feet still go partially numb after resting. After standing up pain shoots through my legs for the first minute or two then it subsides.Hurts like mad. It seems to help by rising very slowly, since the pain doesn't allow me to be in any other position for the first minute or two. I had some spider veins burst in around the ankle area. Hopefully will mend themselves.
Avatar f tn Now, three days later, I still have trouble getting out of bed and my ankles are now so swollen, they look like they're about to explode. I'm considering seeing a doctor because I'm diabetic as well, and like you said, this seems to be somewhat of a mystery. If you ended up getting to the bottom of this, please let me know what you found out. Hope you're well!
Avatar f tn Few hours later blisters were getting bigger and really swollen legs and ankles so went to A and E. Waited over 3 hours to be sent home with burns cream. Had them dressed and cleaned by nurse for over 2 weeks. 2 weeks ago went to doctors to be told ive probably had an infection in my left leg as the swelling was still there. Sent home with nothing. Went to doctors again last week as swelling was still there and came out in a really red sore rash.
Avatar f tn I've been having swollen feet&ankles lately. My mom, who had been seeing me every day, noticed it first. Silly me, I thought it was just that I was putting on weight since I was off of treatment&eating more. On Easter morning, my feet,ankles,lower legs,even my toes were super swollen, so I noticed it. So, we ended up going to the ER. (What a big waste of time that was!). Their final diagnosis, 'bilateral pedal edema'.
Avatar m tn I fly a lot because of my job and I frequently experienced swollen ankles. After speaking with my doctor he recommended compression hosiery. Sigvaris and Jobst were my first options but then I couldn't get over the boring 'old lady' colors. I tried a pair of Nike soccer socks and read as much as I can from and to help me manage my daily symptoms when travelling.
Avatar f tn Hey there, I'm a 20 year old female concerned about catching something after having a man (of unknown status) ejaculate in my mouth twice. Five days after, I woke up with a swollen/sore throat and red, sunburn-like rash covering my groin, buttocks, breasts & surrounding area, but it didn't itch and I no fever. I had slept with a tampon in, and was concerned about TSS, but had no other symptoms.
Avatar n tn I found to take a shower after the beach or being in the sun and after the shower I lather my body with baby oil to trap the moisture and then I put cortizone on the really itchy areas. IT is very annoying and uncomfortable, but it usually goes away in a day or two. My dermatoligist said I am pretty much allergic to everything.
Avatar n tn My neck hurt, wrists,ankles,knees and even my spine. My hands and feet were swollen. I thought I had the flu until I woke up with a sunburn all over.Then I felt as if someone poisoned me. So I got a blood test and was positive for lyme. I never saw a tick,felt a tick or had a bullseye rash. They say the people who have lyme never did see a tick or a rash. The nymph tick is a size of a pin head . They can be beige to transparent. IT is very SCARY. Get another blood test for lyme.
Avatar n tn The next morning after a relatively bad sunburn (over about 80 percent of my body) I noticed that my ankles were swelling up as were my lower legs and my lower arms. I imagine this to be a reaction from the sunburn but is it common? I did just have a facelift about a month ago, could that be the link? I've burned like this before and never gotten swollen.
Avatar n tn Last year I had an ablation of the lining of my uterus. The dr. told me that I could'nt get pregnant. Over a year later, I am pregnant and scared to death. I have been reading up on ablation, and have came across nothing but "you should'nt get pregnant after an alation, because it's high risk for the mother and baby". I do not know how far along I am, but I believe about 4 mths already. I go to the dr.
Avatar n tn Here is the continuation of surfnsand247's original Tingling after Swine Flu Vaccine.
Avatar n tn My feet especially turn lobster red. This episodes can be triggered by standing too long (feet/ankles become bright red/swollen/start burning), from being exposed to heat from the sun (not sunburn), having a shower (causes my feet, ankles and upper knees to become bright red and swollen) If I am sitting around in hot weather it can also trigger the redness and swelling.
Avatar n tn I am covered in scabs from my ankles to my neck. I am swollen, sore, and have not slept properly in weeks. I have tried steroid creams, steroid ointments. nerve medication (Valium), Anxiety medication, Vaseline applied to wet skin, rubbing alcohol, every anti-itch product the drugstore carries ( maybe not every product), Benadryl, and powder. I am only taking cool showers with hardly any soap.
162948 tn?1205256292 now am scared because I see that a lot of women have not been able to conceive after the mirena IUD removal... pls help!!! I have had it for 18 months and after all the crazy stories, I am thinking of having it removed :(.
Avatar n tn My symtpoms are primarily muscle pain, sometimes burning pain (like sunburn) in muscles of thighs when sitting for long periods of time, and a feeling of swelling in my hands. I should mention that I have 2 cervical herniated discs with cord compression. I never had joint pain, sometimes my ankles or knees will hurt, but nothing major. My primary pain is muscle pain & stiffness mainley in my neck and back which feels as if I have had an intense workout.
Avatar f tn Hello there, I'm a 20 year old female wondering if it's possible that I am experiencing symptoms of acute HIV. Here's the background: Possible exposures: sex with man (status unknown), with condom, just over a month ago. Almost two weeks ago, oral sex (giving and receiving) with a different man (status unknown), ejaculated in my mouth both times.
Avatar m tn I am a 34yo female with 5 week history of bilateral knee, hands, fingers, calves and feet swelling. The joints in my knees, fingers, wrist and ankles are also swollen and painful. The pain seems to migrate and even my ribs and sternum become very tender which is increased by pressure or swisting/walking. The palmer surface of my hands get very red and warm as well as both cheeks and bridge of nose. The rash on the face and hands is red, warm and feels like a sunburn.
1748829 tn?1338040641 I know we don't all experience the same things but when I had cirrhosis, I never had itching problems. My ankles and legs did get swollen but not until my cirrhosis was far advanced. What did cause me terrible itching was after my transplant from a problem with my bile duct. It made the bottom of my feet itch~weird. And other than fatigue, I believe hep C is fairly asymptomatic.
335728 tn?1331418012 I mistakenly assumed that the Amitriptyline (Elavil) that I am taking (40mg/day) wouldn't make me THAT sensitive but I can honestly tell you today that it will make you VERY SENSITIVE TO THE SUN AND YOU COULD END UP WITH 2ND OR 3RD DEGREE BURNS if you are not very careful!!! My ankles are swollen to the size of my knees and I can hardly walk at the moment and my legs are starting to blister. This is very serious and please take my word for it...
107366 tn?1305683975 Part of it looks as if it is about to blister, and it feels like a really bad sunburn. Fingers on my left hand were too swollen to bend, but I believe that is improving. I have heard of ladies on Doxil getting this type of reaction, but was wondering if anyone had experienced it on Taxotere. I also have thrush. My entire mouth, lips, and even going up towards my nose is inflammed. I have meds for that, but nothing for the rash. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn swollen ankles, legs, etc. try drink some herbal diuretics during this week: equisetum, taraxacum for instance. but you really must wait a week, before you see a doctor?!? take care (and give a good scratch on your hubby's head) a.
Avatar m tn It's like i want to poopoo but i can't my stomach seems so bloated. It last till 28 and feel well on 29. After a couple of days i noticed a rash on my shoulder it's a bit itchy it's like a small patch that when it dried there's lesion or like ringworm. Anyway I didn't mind it but then on April 24 I got curious since there's a lot not that many of this rash on my stomach, back, inner thigh, arms, shoulder, palm. I surf the net and found out that it's a symptoms of hiv.
Avatar n tn Hello Doctor, I posted a month ago with the thread: Weird body pains and swollen throat. Many thanks for your response and reassurance. I got tested for HIV on day 41 at the health department with OraQuick blood test with a negative result and was quite relieved. This all pertains to a low risk exposure on 9/10 consisting of unprotected insertive oral and protected vaginal. A few days after the HIV test the body aches and pains cleared up by 80~90 percent.
Avatar m tn The vague sort of symptoms you describe could just be residual feelings that can continue after cure. (People who sprain their ankles often have continuing milder pain or discomfort for months after the sprain has healed. Similarly, a genital tract infection can have mild symptoms long after the initial problem is gone.) If you remain concerned, return to the STD clinic. If they find no evidence of continuing inflammation or infection, nothing more need be done.
Avatar n tn I'm just confused since i have read on the net that you can have zoster without a rash. I have this sunburn in my skin. What does it feel having a shingles is it like a sunburn sensation? Also right now i have a white tongue in the boarder it's like a warts or something. Is it also possible to transmit the virus thru kissing.
Avatar f tn The blothy rash looked like a sunburn and my ankles got very swoI was dismissed with lasix for swelling. I ended up having knee surgery this year and developed a major DVT. Now I'm dealing with the rash consistanly along with many other problems. My vascular surgeon suspects my problems began with that rash a Disney - not really a rash, but pooling. I wish I was more persistant with my doctor when I thought it might have something to do with the circulation.
