I would suggest the aloe as well. And use lots often. Probably every couple hours I would suggest lathering another layer. If you're having difficulty sleeping at night because the heat and pain Deep Cold cools your skin down and will make you feel restful enough to sleep.

I'm trying to read everything, but haven't finished. I want to tell you that a tall glass of alka-sektzer really helps, all around. It gives you all that sunburn wants: Aspirin, water, and salt. I've had heat exhaustion before, and a tall glass of alka-seltzer with an ice cube or two tossed in really helps.

i can definetly swear to the applecider vinegar idea because that is what i use on my sunburns and it knocks out the sting in a very short time.

Thank You to the ones that recommend the apple cider vinegar I suggested it earlier in the post and someone pooh poohed it. If you are worried it will sting, which it doesn't add a little water it dos work great.

I like the soaking a hand towel in the vinegar and lay it over the burn.. It feels like ice hitting the burn!!

I've been on this site for 3 years......you will always find that someone will disagree with you or your recommendations......so what.............that's why this site is enlightening........if you believe strongly and it works for you then persevere........you are not going to change someone's mind by arguing with them......it' futile........that's what's nice about a site like this........you get lots of great ideas and you pick and choose what pertains to you and or might benefit you........with the collective minds and experiences of people on here........you're looking at a lot of wisdom and a myriad of personalities......we're the DC stewpot..........

when you’ve got a sunburn, drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. this helps keep you from getting dehydrated. so drink plenty of liquids. Although this doesn’t prevent you from getting sunburned, it will prevent you from passing out.
