ok, well it doesn't make sense to me, from a first aid point of view, that he recommends cool compresses and moisturizers, but a lukewarm bath.
i think he might have been trying to say that the oatmeal is good, but should have thought out the heat thing better. lukewarm is warmer than room temp, which would add more radiative energy (this time as direct heat) to the affected area, increasing discomfort and cellular damage. you can actually induce heat stroke if a person's core temp doesn't decrease enough. in other words, you don't put a person with a sunburn in a warm room. you cool them off as best possible, both internally with cool drinks, and externally, with cool water.

just my 2 cents.

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one Buckytom!

The bottled stuff I buy works just as well because it is the goop from inside the leaf. I have 3 different bottles and all that is listed under the ingredients list is aloe. On all the bottles it says 100% pure aloe vera. Nothing else added.

I do have a few bottles that the hotel we stayed at on our honeymoon gave us which was not just aloe though. Those were also with vitamin E added and possibly something else as well since the color was green.

I was always told that a cool compress will give you relief, but a warm compress will keep the skin from tightening up and reduce peeling.
That said, I burned the crap out of my forehead and nose July Fourth. They just got back to normal a few days ago. It didn't peel so much as it cracked and flaked. This was with nothing applied except a warm washcloth a couple times a day.
I have since boughten some 85 SPF sports sunscreen. I think they made even higher.

Above 30 (at least I think it is 30) does not give you any additional protection. 30 is the same as 100 just as covering yourself in lead would give you the same protection as being inside.
