Effects of a Peripheral Nerve Block on Biomarkers of Pain and Inflammation

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of a local anesthetic nerve block on markers of inflammation and pain after a sunburn. This is important because it may provide information regarding the way that nerve blocks help with the treatment of pain and in particular provide preemptive analgesia.
