will motrin help with a sunburn?

both of my boys got burned today. it's not that bad, but i'm sure they're uncomfortable. they're whining (and with good reason) but i don't want to give them meds if it's not going to help. and before you lecture me about using sunblock, i'll let you know that i slathered them head to toe. it must have worn off :(

  • vinegar? really? i know about aloe (we already did that) but why does vinegar help? i've never heard of that.

  • Yes Motrin, and now I will lecture you on sunblock. You have to put it on every hour or so, more often if they are in the water...duh!
