The Worst Burn

Anonymous's picture

Does anybody have any tips on how to take care of sunburns? I went to Six Flags with my Dad, his gf, and my little sister yesterday and I have the WORST sun burn. I've got it on my face a little bit, a small part on my chest and back, but my arms are so sore that I only got a couple of hours of sleep last night. I couldn't get comfortable; anty way I layed down my arms burned. If anyone can tell me anything that would make it hurt any less, that would be great!!

Aloe vera works. I think rubbing vinegar over the burn does as well, but don't quote me on that.

definetly aloe

aloe is like...the cream from the gods when it comes to sunburn. If you have an aloe plant, it's much better than using the processed stuff you can find in the store, and less sticky as well. If you don't have one, I suggest buying one because they grow huge and even if you're not burned, it's great for your skin.

Thanks for the tips! My sist

Thanks for the tips! My sister has an aloe plant and she put it all over my arms. It helped a lot...I'm trying to talk her into letting me use more. ;-)

She keeps on asking, do you think it hurts to die? It's hurting so much more to stay alive...
