well sorry if this doesnt help much, but put aloe on it. Thats what my mom does whenever she gets a burn, and she gets really bad burns too. if aloe doesnt work, or you cant find it, go to your local walgreens or rite aid, or CVS and ask an employee where you could find things to help sooth a sunburn. ZThey'll be able to help you. Hope i helped! &hearts;dAnieLLe

Nallie answered Friday April 21 2006, 12:30 am:
Take a cool shower, when you get out dry off with a soft towel by patting not rubbing. Once dry apply solarcain or any of the burn creams that contain the "cain" this will help with pain control. Plain aloe gel or noxema does not have the medicine in it for the pain.

Wear light weight cotton clothes. Drink plenty of water to help with hydration and take over the counter Ibuprofen (advil) per the package directions, provided you don't have an ulcer or an allergy to that medication...you should ask a parent or a health professional before taking medication just in case.

If you apply Noxzema onto your sunburn, it will help cool and soothe your skin. But here are other products and remedies that you could try to relieve your sunburn:

Aloe Vera Gel
For sunburn there is nothing better than aloe vera gel; it is antibacterial and deeply healing for burns in part because of aloectin B, which stimulates the immune system. Aloe vera gel is used in hospitals for burn victims. Aloe Vera comes from the aloe vera plant, and the gel may be squeezed from its leaves, or you can buy pure aloe vera gel as a product in most health food stores.

Vitamin E Cream
One of the antioxidants, vitamin E creams, ointments and oils, can help heal sunburn damage and shorten its effects.

Increase Your Vitamin C
Another antioxidant, increasing your vitamin C intake while sunburned will help you heal.

Black Tea Sunburn Soother
The tannins in cool black tea will help sooth a sunburn.

Baking Soda Bath
Have a cool bath to which 1/2 a cup of baking soda has been added.

Calendula Creams
Calendula is one of the most healing plants. The flowers are emollient, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antiviral. They are immune system stimulants and rich in carotenoids. Look in your health food store for calendula creams and ointments.

Avoid Petroleum jelly, as it will hold in the heat.

I usually think that it helps to take a nice cool bath. and, when i get sunburn i buy maximum strength cool aloe I.C.E.*. (it comes in a blue bottle and the background is sparkly) it works great on the most severe sunburn!

ForfeitYourDream answered Wednesday April 19 2006, 3:13 pm:
If your sunburn is so severe your skin is peeling off in layers, DON'T do this:

Go buy a tub of Noxzema and rub a little bit on your sunburn. It cools and soothes it.

I found this off a website:
Reach for a pain reliever. The old standby aspirin can help relieve the pain, itching, and swelling of a mild to moderate burn. "Take two tablets every 4 hours," says University of Nebraska dermatologist and assistant professor of internal medicine Rodney Basler, M.D. "The same dosage of Tylenol would work also. Or, if your stomach can tolerate it, you might try three or four tablets of ibuprofen every 8 hours."
Apply soothing compresses. Following a burn, the skin is inflamed. Try cooling it down with compresses dipped in any one of the following substances. If desired, you can direct a fan on the sunburned area to heighten cooling.

Cold water. Use either plain water from the faucet or add a few ice cubes, says Arizona dermatologist Michael Schreiber, M.D., senior clinical lecturer in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Arizona College of Medicine. Dip a cloth into the liquid and lay it over the burn. Repeat every few minutes as the cloth warms. Apply several times a day for a total of 10 to 15 minutes each.

prescott answered Wednesday April 19 2006, 12:01 pm:
Whatever you do, do not apply ice. Or bathe in cold water.It will only make it worst. Luke warm water will be most appropriate.

Aloe Vera is widely used to ease sunburn. If you can't find any, just get a skin lotion with Aloe Vera & Vit E (Johnson & Johnson Baby Lotion). The Aloe Vera content will help cool down your burns and the Vit E it will help regenerate your skin.

Don't worry, the pain will go off in a couple of days. If your sunburn is REALLY unbearable, you might want to consider consulting a doctor.

Remember to put on extra sun block lotion the next time you go under the sun. Which reminds me, stay away from direct sunlight. Cover up if you have to.

You'll be fine. Get well soon.
