Storm Chaser

toxic love x0

smiley =)
-soak in an oatmeal bath
-spray it with cool water (only relieves pain for a minute)
- put pressure on it (will hurt at first)
- buy aloe vera

u can put on sunblock over the burn or if u have noxema u can apply a layer on and then after five minutes wash it off.

Lots and lots of aloe vera lotion or gel will do the trick. It also helps to put the lotion/gel in the refrigerator before you put it on, so it's nice and cool. In the meantime, wear loose, comfortable clothing and stay out of the sun until you heal. I hope you feel better soon!

u sure u cant buy aloe?
thats the best and not too expensive
try ice or try anything at hand
possibly neosporin vaseline something?
bestchoice tough is aloe

try a cool compress...you can use a wet wash cloth to sooth the pain.

get some lotion that contains aloe

don't touch it, or lay on it and make it hurt really bad, then you won't hate it as much if you are causing it.


Aloe vera is the best solution. You can buy it in the gel form, or you can purchase an aloe plant, which will work for future burns.

If you do decide to put a cold compress on it, make sure you have something between your skin and the cold compress, like a rag or towel. Your skin will be overly sensitive and freezing it may cause further damage!

Get someone to put vinegar on your back (carefully and only if it's not REALLY bad sunburn) - the vinegar takes the sting out. And ... to take the pain away you've got to stop the burning.

The simplest and most obvious answer is to treat it as though it's a regular burn. You need to cool it down. The skin is still 'burning' despite you being out of the sun.

Try a cool shower to try and cool down the entire area. And if you do use vinegar (ordinary in the cupboard stuff) put it on with cotton wool and be liberal with it. Or check out the link below - it shows you how to apply vinegar so that it has a better effect.

And last bit of advice - do your best to avoid it in future. SUNCREAM!!!

And I hope you sort yourself out ok - I know it can be very painful :)

cold showerr.

I would suggest going to get the aloe, but if it isn't an option, here is a list of household things that could help:

Ibuprofen might help, but get yourself some aloe vera gel. It's worth it. You can get it at the dollar store if money is an issue.

Luke warm water or colder. Fill a bowl or something and soak a wash cloth or towel and put it on the burn. Or try Solarcane from your local drug store.

No matter what you do you will still be sore for a day or so. The cold washcloth will take the heat out of the burn.

but avalon oil on it or baby oil good for your skin

without gels i dont think there is any one thing that could soothe a sun burn. ive never been sun burnt before but try a frozen towel on the spot. other than that you need something from a bottle.

I put vaseline,but other than that...maybe baby oil or sunblock.

Use eucolyptus based lotions. That should do the trick.

Put Some Windex On It!

hockey boy
go buy aleo??? its the only thing

u have to get lotion it is green and very helpful

get some aloe vera and put it in the fridge to get it nice and cold. then use a nice big glob of it. rub it in but leave a nice layer on. it should help.

THE GREEEENNNN ALOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slap it and assign a name for it.

I Be Awesome
Soothing Aloe always works with me.
It makes it go away quicker too.
