I had huge blisters, they poped..I went to the doctor and he basically didnt say anything... Im putting aloe vera on it after i take a bath..i would relly appreaciate it..it hurts like hell and i cant sleep..

After sun and vinegar

Calamine lotion perhaps?

right after you get home or get inside form the sun
shower lightly
then apply it
it will smell only for an hour
apply before bed then aloe vera
and in the morning after your shower
aloe again
you can shower regularly and aloe vera often without applying vinegar anymore

this is called sun poisoning. it hurts like hell .... huh? spray yourself down w/ vinegar. it will make you stink like a salad, but eventually it will help take the sting out of the burn. good luck

This may be a little embarrassing, but its very much worth it, take a milk bath, and there you go. Keep taking them once a day, until it is all gone. Tips from me are true.

Someone told me to put baking soda in water but i, personally, never tried it.

hope i helped !!

good luck !!


The dr. should have given you something for pain -- Did you ask?
Keep the skin moist - It's gonna peel - but keping it moisturized will keep peeling/scarring to a minimum. Use Bactine spray - it has lidocaine(pain killer) in it - And use suncreen from now on -

Vinegar, Solar cane...I'm still not understanding why the doc didn't say anything?? Aloe lots of aloe (gel, put it the fridge.) I've been there, these r the things that I did....Good Luck!!!

white vinegar

Well what he told you is prolly the best thing for it honestly. With sunburns its all waiting it out and suffering. The aloe will help. Also put some cold cream on the blisters. That should also help pull the heat out of your burn. But unfortunately you're just gonna have to wait it out =[

Just keep up the lotion and aloe vera! You can also try taking a cool shower or bath rather than a warm one. blot dry do not rub dry. But really keep up the lotions and aloe. I put my aloe in the fridge so it stays cold and when i put it on it feels so much better. Just cake it on and keep applying. sleep with a light cotton t-shirt to help protect your skin from rubbing on the sheets or blankets. Try fans too!

Aloe is good but hard to find one that is strong enough. I have plants that I use for that. You just cut it open and rub it on.

However Solarcain is good but it is cold when sprayed on.

Oatmeal baths can help too. Oatmeal is healing.
Uncooked of course. Take some pain pills such as Tylenol or Advil or such. Some people recommend Calamine lotion but I have never tried it.

Actually I would reccomend Benadryl tablets for the duration, it also helps you sleep. I am not a doctor so use your own judgement.

I hope you feel better soon, sunburns are burns afterall and hurt really bad. Some doctors do not take them seriously because they are sunburns.
A burn is a burn.

aloe vera!!!

aftersun is actually really good

Tom Schwob

for the sun burn i would put on after sun, but im not sure about the blisters..ouch!

aloe works almost every time. it works better if you get it like straight from the plant though.

Keep yourself hydrated by drinking lots of water and keep slathering on the aloe vera or unscented moisturizing lotion.

Stay using ur aloe use the gelly and the cream and it will b fine in a coppel of days

aloe ice, the blue kind, will take the sting and red and hottness out of ur major sunburn. stay out of the sun. another that will help you sleep is if you take a couple of advil or aleve (thats stronger) about 30 before you plan to go to sleep. but other than that, there's nothing you can do really expect wait and let it heal.

a really bad sun burning, like a sting sensation?
try rubbing in after sun or a moisturizer ?


Bactine used to work for me when I was a kid, but I think they may have changed the formula. Wet teabags are also supposed to work. Obviously nothing that requires rubbing anything on.

You may just have to gut it out.

I'm sorry.

go to the store and buy ocean potion its a blue bottle that helps heal sunburn it works i use it (currently)

Just lots and lots of aloe and lotion. DON'T USE VINEGAR! My ex was told that would help and he ended up with a lot of worse severe painful stinging.
