Solarcaine isn't suppose to hurt when I spray it on,is it?

I got some pretty bad sunburn on my upper chest today. When I spray the Solarcaine on,it itches/burns until it's dry. Allergic reaction? Normal?

  • I used that when I got burned in Hawaii. It stung a lot, but that was partly because my skin was so raw and blistering. I don't know how much was the spray and how much was the burn. What helped me most was vinegar. It took a lot of the sting out. I hope you heal fast. Sunburns suck balls.

  • Yes, it will sting and I agree with Julie, use vinegar. Stinks but it works.

  • You got any aloe vera gel? best thing in the world for sunburn. Dab it on with a cotton ball!

  • Oh yea! That stuff burns! I also bought Neo-to-go, Neosporin spray for my purse & that burned like a Biacha also.

  • Vinegar is a miracle when it comes to sunburn. Takes the fire right out. Feel better soon; sunburns are the worst.

  • My guess is that it is so icy that your damaged nerves think of it as pain. You could always spray on some plain white vinegar.

  • it's probably the alcohol (0.06% v/v) that's causing the sting...

  • I keep the aloe gel in the fridge. Mix it with a tiny bit of lotion so it's not so sticky, & it works wonders. And you don't have to smell like vinegar! :p
