The painful symptoms of sunburn – inflamed sensitive skin – aren’t the product of the sun damage itself, but rather of your body’s system immune system response to the sun damage.

The initial damage is molecular damage to your DNA. It takes some time for your body to notice the damage and for your immune system to mount a full response.
