Does anyone have any suggestions for a bad sunburn?
I'm going to choke my sister she let my DS go out and play on a waterslide and never put any sunscreen on him eventhough I asked her to several times. By the time I got to her house today, he had spent the night, he was burnt to a crisp. Her girls tan beautifully, but my boys are red heads and burn, blister, and peel. Looks like I'm in for a long night.

  • Either, Aloe Vera gel, or the nice a smelly vinager, the latter works the best if it is that bad, it will help with the burning that your child might feel. But the smell some people can't take, but I have found it is the best.

  • I have redheads too, I feel your pain. Vinegar and aloe vera are the best things I have found.
