I do not know if I can say anything to fully prepare you for what you will see and read, so let's get started: A young girl has recently shared photos of the heavy blisters on her back – a terrible one Sunburn, and now her story becomes viral.
According to her Facebook post, Squires was only in the sun for an hour, snorkeling by the sea and wearing sunscreen. "I did not know [sic] that my back burned," she wrote, "but it left such bad bubbles because it was very hot in Cuba." To make matters worse, Squires reported in the post that their bladders "developed just before a 9-hour return flight to England."
On Friday, Squires announced an update on her condition and showed on Facebook a picture of the blisters on her back, she was clearly deflated or slammed completely – though the intense redness was still visible. Maisie also said in another comment that she visited a hospital for the burns, but "they did not do anything".

Another important step in recovery from a severe sunburn: stay hydrated. According to AAD, a sunburn can drain fluid to the skin surface and from the rest of the body, which can lead to dehydration.
And as for the sunscreen – know to avoid heavy blisters on your back Avoid sunburns in the first place or in the case of Sqiures. It is best to use one with broadband protection (ie it protects against UVA and UVB rays), has a SPF of at least 30 and is water resistant to the AAD. Also important: get as much shade as possible; wear light protective clothing and wear the sunscreen you should wear (usually 30 minutes before going into the sun, and then every two hours).
As for Squires, I just hope she stays as comfortable as possible – and that she works with doctors to make sure the blisters heal properly.
