Sunburned feet now swelling… HELP!

Hi Doctor,My husband sunburned his feet yesterday and now his feet are swollen.
First of all, what can we do to help bring th swelling down?
My second concern for my husband is when he fractured his foot about 2 years ago and wound up in the hospital with blood clots.
Could his swollen sunburned feet cause the blood clots to return since he is having to elevate his feet to keep them comfortable?
Thanks for your time!

  1. Depends on how bad the burn is. If it is mild then cool compresses may be a good idea. Before I suggest medications, I highly recommend he be evaluated by a doctor.
