  • That sounds really bad!! Maybe you should see a Dr. for that one. I hope you feel better!

  • Yikes. I'm not one to rush to the doctor over most things but you might want to see one.
    My husband is actually allergic to sunburns. He got a pretty bad one years ago and was fine the next day but that night he started itching all over. It was so intense he couldn't stand it but he couldn't scratch because if anything touched his back he felt like he was on fire. He was actually in tears (and the only time I've seen my husband cry was at his father's funeral) and screaming and I had to rush him to the ER. The doctor was baffled but gave him a shot of benadryl which worked. He missed a week of work because he was hopped up on antihistamines. If he didn't take them constantly the itching and pain would come back.
