  • Sunburn/poisoning

    Since Emmy mentioned it in another thread I thought we could all share some of our own remedies. One is using vinegar - put it in a bowl and dip a washcloth in it and lay over the burned area. The cloth absorbs the heat so you have to do it over and over. Another one is if your legs are burned (or any part you can get in the tub!!) add baking soda to tepid water and soak in it. Of course, you take Tylenol with either of these and it helps!!:Flame :flaming: And be sure to keep hydrated cuz you can def dehydrate when you are burned!!

        You may not believe me, but HONEY! Spread a layer on, about as much as you'd put on a pnut butter sammich (:p) and cover with a cloth and let it sit. The longer the better, and even a couple times a day.

        This came from an EMT who swears by it.

          yea that Aloe Vera works great. I buy a bottle and keep it in the fridge... then whenever someone gets burned not only is it cooling it does indeed take the redness away.

            Aloe is my number one remedy, followed by witch hazel.

              aloe vera from the fridge is great :D
              also, believe it or not if you take fresh tomato and put it on the burn it will be gone by the next morning..somthing about the lycopine in it does the trick!!

                      If you really have sun poisoning you must take benadryl. I had sun/poisoning 1 time years ago and I didn't know what to do. I tried everything. When I took the benadryl it almost went away immediately.

                        got sunburned really good a few years ago on my face. the only thing i found to help was fresh aloe. my eyes even swelled shut! the burns were worse on my nose cheeks and forehead. i had a guy ask me a week later if a radiator cap for a car had blowed up on me. he couldnt believe it was a sunburn!

                          Noxzema works good, it cools your skin down and it helps exfoliate when you start to peel

                            Anything with Aloe Vera will soothe your burning skin. Also, cool bath or shower is the best temporary relief solution too...:p, stay clear of the warm or hot water, it makes it worse and may just bring tears to your eyes.
