If you are interested in a homeopathic remedy for healing, a topical treatment of aloe vera gel or concentrate can be both soothing and healing to this serious burn. You can obtain aloe vera solutions at most health and vitamin stores in the US. Stay away from commercial products with fragrance or coloring that is artificial. Also use cool compresses to bring the temperature of skin down and to relieve pain.
One should never cover blistered skin with creams or lotions, avoid topical treatments containing isoprpyl alcohol. Depending on your age and health, it is likely our burns will be nearly healed by the time of this wedding.
Sunburn can be defined as acute inflammation or blistering of the skin caused by overexposure of the skin to the sun. It is the ultraviolet radiation from the rays of the sun that results in sunburn and it is more severe in light skinned people.
There are a number of ways to take the sting out of sunburn. An antipruritic lotion is often helpful in mild sunburn. The gel made of aloe vera plant, white vinegar and cider vinegar are all found to be useful in treating sunburn. Other home remedies for sunburn treatment include lavender oil, cooled tea, cucumbers and yogurt.
The severe pain and sting from sunburn can be treated using an analgesic including ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Some people also use tomatoes for treating sunburn, but it is a more painful way of treating sunburn.
Moisturising lotions based on avocado can also be a good treatment for sunburn. Ice will take out the immediate sting of sunburn but when removed, discomfort will follow. A hot shower is also found to be useful, but in severe sunburn it may damage the skin further.
Hm, actually aloe vera is not what you use at first, it puts a coat on your burn & keeps the heat in, your suppose to wet burned area with cool water until skin doesn't feel heated. THEN you put the aloe on, & will keep the heat out. Repeat as heat returns.
Another home remedy, is vinegar keeps sting away. I use a spray bottle, & spray directly on skin. Works wonders.
My son got burned real bad not to long ago and we kept it most and put aloe Vera on it and lotion. But your prob. Going to peal no matter what. Sorry hope you have a good time at the wed.
You can use vinegar to pull the heat out of the burn, and then apply some A&D ointment to it. This is made for burns and other medicinal applications. Hope this helps.
Mostly any of these things that keep it cool will make it feel better just don't let it get infected. A good over the counter burn med. Might be a good idea.
I use aloe vera gel, that thing is really great. Very, very awesome painreliever and heals pretty fast. I use aloe vera for all kinds of burns; sunburn, hot cooking oil burn, hot boiling water burn.
I am going through that now. I haven't found anything that helps. Oatmeal baths, yogurt, vinegar, after sun care, aloe vera, and Noxzema. It has definitely cooled it down but has not helped the blisters. You may have to go to the doctor about this. That is what I am going to do. I also heard that milk, ice, and water will help. But it has to be whole fat milk. Good luck....
You put vinegar and water in a spray bottle and mist the burned area slowly making sure the vinegar is cold. Also doing the same with cold milk makes it feel better but nothing will make it "go away"
The best way to avoid sunburn is to apply sun block lotions. If ever you have sunburn, applying aloe, slices of tomatoes or cucumber could help ease the pain. They should only be considered first aid remedies though.
Well there is after sun but I really recommend aloe vera its really good and cools it down but you can also use natural pure yogurt and it clears it up quite fast xxx
I have a few ideas my friends gave me.
1) take a shower in salt and water, well more of a bath. It will hurt extremely bad but helps a ton.
2) bath in milk for about 10 minutes
3) shower with oatmeal, and also do this for any serious cuts
4) rub tomatoe juice all over the sunburn
after which ever you choose I recommend to put on this aloe vera stray an the sunburn and it will feel a whole lot better in the morning. You want to stay away from any type of cooling creme
