Ouch Sunburns!!!

My son has his first bad sunburn! He went swimming at his mimi's without sunscreen and here are the results! OUCH! I have had sunburns my entire life... thanks to fair skin. I know how much they hurt and I feel helpless when it comes to his pain! I have been using Aloe Vera on it, does anyone else have any suggestions on how to relieve the pain??? Please leave a comment if you have any suggestions! Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Ouch! Poor guy!

    They sell aloe w/ a numbing agent (it's probably with the sunscreen or in the pharmacy)

    Put the bottle in the refrigerator and apply as often as desired.

    It really helps!

  2. Ouch! I feel his pain, as I had so many of those as a kid due to fair skin as well. Do you have access to fresh aloe vera? Straight from the plant is the best thing I've found.

  3. I think the stuff is called Bactrin {spelling?}
    but it is in a spray can and they gave it to me when I had babies to spray on my whooha{stitches--OUCH!!--sorry TMI}
    but that seems to help my kiddies when they get a sunburn!
    HTH :)
