Blistered Sunburn - September 10th 2013, 01:17 AM

I went to the beach this weekend and I used tons of sunscreen, but because my lupus medicine makes me even more sensitive to the sun I now have a sunburn and blisters all over my shoulder, back , and legs. Does anyone have any yips on how to make them go away or just stop hurting so bad?

Aloe Vera cooling gel is probably the thing that will provide you the most relief, as well as making sure you stay ridiculously hydrated - I'm talking drinking til your pee turns clear and then drinking some more.

Any cold cream should help though, whoever applies it will obviously need to have a gentle touch, and if you can, have baths instead of showers because the water pressure of showers on bad sun burn is incredibly painful. Or if you can adjust your water pressure, do that.

Sun burns that have blistered usually take 7 - 10 days to heal completely, but stop being painful within 3 - 5. I know all about sun burn because I'm a pale skinned person living in a country with a hole in its ozone layer and I'm lazy about sunscreen.

But yeah, best thing I can suggest for pain relief is aloe vera cooling gel. Seeing as you're in America, try Walgreen's, if you can't find it there, then a proper pharmacy will definitely stock it.

Aloe vera gel works wonders. However, out of left field - ordinary (and cheap) white vinegar. Put a paper towel over the sunburn, soak in vinegar, leave it sit on there. It helps with pain relief, plus helps the skin heal as fast as aloe does - both are faster than natural healing. (I did an experiment on myself last time I had bad sunburn.)

Wouldn't put it on blisters though...


Feel free to email/PM/VM/whatever me if you want. I'll answer as soon as I can.

Thank you all I found some Aloe Vera that has lidocaine in it at CVS and you just spray it on so no need to touch the painful skin! Thank you all so much!

I love the blue gel stuff that has lidocaine in it. I always make sure I have a pack of it around each summer. It's a small amount of lidocaine if I remember correctly.
