Snow Burn
Good reason to wear proper clothing for the sun. This happened to my partner after 2 days. This picture was taken days after the worst part of the burn, her eyes had closed up and face was much more swelled.

also use a high factor (50) sun blocking cream or lotion. I hope your partner has recovered!

that looks pretty painful. I've seen lots of sunburns from glaciers but I've never seen puffiness like that before.

When we got to the hospital in Bishop CA they thought she had been bitten by a snake. The worst part was it reached the apex around 12,000 feet at 2am.

I hope she is recovered by know. The sun is able to damage thats for sure but 2 days and this kind of injury shows that she is very allergic to sun or she might have been allergic to some medication or food that causes this reaction in presence of sun.
I dont think that this is a normal reaction.
wish you guys the best and i hope that she will never feel something like this again.
take care and have fun.
