Red face bad sunburn

friday, i sat with my dogs in a kiddie pool for about 30 minutes. now, on sunday i am burned very badly on my thighs, stomach and chest. only my stomach and legs hurt, and they have small purple lines showing through the burn. a friend said that this is nerve damage. nothing really helps, though i keep thouraly(sp) saturated in aloe. i cannot bear to move the skin, to touch the burn, and even putting aloe on is worse than anything. the burn on my cest is the same, but it does not hurt. i would feel stupid going to the doctor for a sunburn with no blisters, especially on memorial day weekend, where the wait will inevitably be long, but is this bad enough to go? i am scared of getting permanent nerve damage.
