yesterday i went to paramount canadas wonderland (great place- went on my first rollar coaster EVER yesterday!) i was having so much fun i forgot to reapply sunscreen. now, i have a horrible burn on my shoulders and face. its so bad, my parents let me stay home because it hurts to move. i've tried aloe-vera plant leaves, vaseline aloe-vera lotion, vaseline, cold clothes,etc to make the hurt go away. ive heard about milk soothing burns (the lactic acid helps) and that will be my next endeavor, after the oatmeal bath (it soothed my chickenpox 7 years ago,so my logic is, maybe it will soothe my burn) im about to have. anyone have any tips to soothe my red,red skin?

believe me, ive learned my lesson about SPF!

Just be as gentle as you can with your singed skin.

That aloe stuff works, but get the kind w/o the alchohol in it, because alchohol can dry you out and that is not what you want.  Taking cool baths with oatmeal (tie a big handful of oatmeal into a coffee filter and constantly squeeze it into the water to release the oaty goodness) will help, but unfortunately, time is really the only thing that will heal it.  There is serious trauma to t he upper layers of your skin, so you just have to baby it until your body heals.  Keep drinking water, take vitamins, get rest, and try not to bother the skin too much.  Loose clothes are good. 

If you feel hot/burny, keep a spray bottle full of cold water handy to mist yourself.  You want to moisturize too, but avoid anything perfumed or anything that contains alchohol.

Sorry this happened   Embarrassed  Hopefully you can avoid any more sunburns this summer!

The Vaseline was probably a bad idea. It tends to hold the heat in.

I second this idea. My skin is very fair and I burn badly and aloe is a very good remedy. After the redness goes away a little, moisturize heavily to prevent peeling too badly.

You can buy aloe vera gel that has lidocaine, which is anesthetic. I use some called Cool Blue Fruit of the Earth Aloe Fast Burn Relief with Lidocaine. It cools, prevents peeling, and the lidocaine is numbing. It really works. Wink

I burn if I step out without SPF 50- That said, if I get a burn I grab a bottle of Sarna from eckerds. It's not cheap, but its the best thing for damaged itchy burned skin. It's with the lotions.

This is really old but for future reference, olive oil is really soothing. My grandma always used it on my burns when i was a kid
