Im due in 6 days...and I got a sunburn :(

Its even on my toes! Never have I had sunburned toes before!!! Ouch. My back, shoulders, legs, feet and toes. I even used MAXIMUM strength sunblock! Aloe Vera isn't soothing as much as I would have hoped... any sunburn soothing ideas?

  • I've heard of several really bad reactions to the vinegar thing. Cover the areas with towels damp with cool water. Because of your pregnacy I would see your doctor ASAP!

  • Honey i am right there with you. I just posted a question a few minutes ago about my blistering sunburn.
    I wish i had answers on what to do...aloe isnt helping me either..think its making it worse.

  • If you use the gook from the aloe plant when you split it in half , you will find immediate results.

  • Put Aloe on it. Your body reacts differently when you are pregnant. I had many weird skin things. Good luck!

  • I would advise against a cool bath because of the risk of blistering (i speak from experience) and try white or apple cider vinegar and as gross as it may sound milk works well at pulling the heat from the skin
