Okay, it sounds weird, but white vinegar. It's a little stinky but it helps. Mix it 50/50 with water and put it in a spray bottle, hop in the shower and knock yourself out.

 

Also, take a benadryl. It's histamines that make sunburn so painful, so an antihistamine is great. Side benefit (for me anyway) is that benadryl knocks me out cold. If you don't have any benadryl, take a sleepy (as in not non-drowsy) cold medicine. They have anti-histamines in them too.

I know this sounds weird but vinegar will get rid of the pain and heat. If you can stand the smell, pour some in your bathtub with water and just soak, then flip over. I love vinegar so this wouldn't bother me, but my FI HATES even the slightest smell of it. Hope you feel betta...:)

I had a bad burn earlier this summer and my massage therapist put this stuff on it... but I can't remember the name of it! She is an "all-natural" kind of lady... hmmm, I think she said it had collagen in it. That's about all I can remember - sorry sad.gif

Sometimes you can get body butters at Walmart, if you have one of those close by.

 

Also, if you get a round tin of Nivea cream or Noxema and put it in the fridge, that's nice and cool on the skin.

 

Just think, this time next week it'll all be over! Yippee!
