Or just make them feel better. I wasn't even on the river and I got burned watching baseball today. It's really bad and hurts like hell!! Does anyone know a secret or something to make them not hurt so much or get ride of them faster.. and yes i know, wear sunscreen next time.

There is some gel stuff that you put in your fridge and then you put it on the sunburn. I cant remeber the name of it but im sure someone on here knows what im talking about.

Cool (not cold!) shower (you want it to be not too warm and not too cool) and while in there, gently rub the sunburn down with baby oil. Do the same thing each time you shower for the next few days. The baby oil will lock the moisture in. As a professional at getting sunburned, I found this to be the best for me. Reduced the pain and often prevented peeling.

Aloe vera is my best friend in the summer :-)

Bud Light, when taken internally and to excess, will help with the pain.

I am just getting over poisen ivy and taking a oatmeal bath really realieved the itching for a while. I bet that would make you feel better for a little while when combined with a cool bath.

The best thing. use a cotton ball and rub vinegar on the sunburn. It takes the heat out of the burn. It also doesn't peel if you do this.

Potatoes....I know it sounds wierd, but it's supposed to take the heat out of the burn also. I make really thin slices, sorta like for potato chips, and put them on the burn.

Take asprin as soon as you think youve been burned. Read about it in a medical mag. at the doctors office. seems to work

Aloe Vera Gel.......they sell it along with suncreen at drug stores.....something else that works for me.( I know it sounds kinda psycho) When taking a shower I turn the water up as HOT as I can stand it (yeah, it hurts).....but afterward it doesn't feel as bad & then use lot's of aloe vera

To properly rid the burning glow Apollo has bestowed upon your flesh follow these simple steps. First you need belly feathers from a new-born pidgin, 3 flat stones with sufficient shine to reflect the longest night's moon, a ford tractor, and last but not least Sand from the North shores of Nigeria. Start the tractor, place a stone at each tire. With an idle humming like kittens belly sprinkle sand all around your body forming a circle on the ground................

I just had to jump on the theme of weirdest sh*t I've ever heard.

Aloe Vera --- Load up on it, then repeat 25 minutes later, then again in an hour or so. I keep loading up on it.

Just wait til it starts to itch and peel...first burn of the year is definitely always the worst

As Stuart mentioned, I too have actually read that HOT water works versus cold water. Something about the cold water closing your pours and keeping the burn in. Google it. I am sure tons of answers will come up.

Every time I fry at the beach I find a really hot, hot tub creep in as slowly as possible and soak in the hot water. It seems to always take out the sting of the burn.

When my uncle was a kid, my aunt told him that cow manure would get rid of freckles. It didn't work for his freckles, but maybe it would work on a sunburn.

I'm with the hot tub/hot bath/hot shower crowd. It really stings at first, but it certainly helps. I think it makes you peel though.

This hot bath/shower thing does sound pretty interesting.

I usually sit in a pool and apply loads of aloe.

how about sunscreen?
Old     (kevin_rx20)      Join Date: Apr 2005       05-01-2006, 3:18 PM Reply   
I will second the vinegar thing. I used to get an old butter bowl and pour vinegar in it and then use a wash cloth to apply it to my burn. Completely takes the burn out. It may take a couple of applications however, and you will STINK afterwards.

I've also done the hot shower thing. I don't know why but it seems to help take the burn away.

and anything with lidocaine. That stuff numbs you up GOOD.

Nozema... put it in the fridge and cool it down first. Takes the sting out.

The other thing that works well is a spray called solarcane. It cools and relieves the pain.

I have heard of Nozema(slimmy) & Solarcane (sticky.) Together not to bad. Seriously, my family uses Aquafor, it's in the lotion section of the store it dulls the burn and by morning you will be amazed at how much more tan than red you are. And it's a lotion no sticky or cream slim.
