Will redness from sunburn always go away?

I have fair skin and I got sunburnt one week ago. It was bad - my legs and stomach got burnt the worst. The day after I could barely walk and had lots of pain (pain like shin splints) up the front of my legs but I didn't get any huge sun blisters just some tiny little white ones. It's been a week sunburn pain and the pain in my legs has almost gone but I am still very red where I was burnt. Will this heal with time? I don't want to have red skin forever.
