What can I do for my 13 month olds sunburn besides aloe?

I did use sunscreen and reapplied it twice. Please no bashing. Thanks.

  • Oh, poor baby! Just keep applying that aloe, and keep her cool. Dress her lightly, keep her indoors or in the shade, and be gentle..those burns hurt when they're touched! Good luck, I hope she feels better soon!

  • if you are a breastfeeding moma pump some and put it on her skin. I have done this and the sunburn goes away overnight. Also look up sunburn on earthclinic.com they will give you ideas of things you can try.

  • I use Sun Shadesâ„¢ After Sun Hydrogel E
    Soothe sun-exposed and wind-ravaged skin with Sun Shades After Sun Hydrogel E.

    Sun Shades After Sun Hydrogel E helps repair the effect of overexposure, windburn, and dry weather that can leave skin parched. After Sun Hydrogel E soothes skin with nourishing botanicals that comforts and softens dry skin.

    The enhanced conditioning power helps relieve dry and burned skin. Your skin will attract moisture and remain hydrated with help from vegetable glycerin and soy extract. And, extracts from aloe and algae soothe your dry, irritated skin. sunshad
