Remedy for Sunburn

I have painful, peeling sunburn. It started out with just my chin peeling, because I had used different acne lotion and I went into the sun. Now my face is peeling, the chin, then it went to the nose, the next day it went to my cheeks. My chin is so painful, it burns like crazy when I put moisturizer on to help the tightness and peeling. I can't stand it and I want to know what will at least stop the intense pain.

Sounds like you have more going on beside sunburn; possibly an allergic reaction to the new acne medicine. You might consider seeing a doctor pronto.

When ever I got a bad sunburn I found cold items worked to lessen the pain. When my back got sun burnt I stood in the shower with cold water on my back. Still had the burn but no pain. Maybe other posters have another solution.

Wet washcloths and apply the cold compresses. You can put them into the fridge to get them cold.

Do you have any aloe vera gel? Unfortunately, it is going to take time to heal.

Use cold water-soaked towels on the sunburned areas, reimmersing the towels in cold water as they absorb the heat of the burns and feel warm to the touch. The best thing I've found to relieve the pain.

For the pain of the sunburn we have always found that Noxzema - the cleansing cream will give immediate relief from the burn. It feels cool going on and has never failed to work. Usually just the first application is all that is necessary.

This sounds quite serious. I think you should see your doctor. You can at least take ASA or Tylenal to help with the pain.

Last summer I had a terrible sunburn on my back. I used all of the sprays, etc. that I could think of. I thought I would have to go to the hospital because of the pain being so bad.

Then, I thought of some carbonated petroleum jelly that I had. I used it on my back and immediately, the pain was gone. You should be able to get this at any drugstore. Try it and see if it doesn't work for you.

Definitely Aloe Vera Gel - the pure gel, not lotion. It really works for burns.

It sounds like more than a sunburn, although they can be very painful. You should probably see your dermatologist for some burn medication.

I'm so sorry for your pain. May God speedily heal you. You have to be very careful in sun when using retinal (that is what most acne medicine contains) SPF always. When I had a chemical peel which is the worst burn ever, my Dr. said only Vaseline. I had always heard Aloe Vera,too. It isn't right, you can also put cold compress's on your face as many times as needed.

I used frozen peas, put bag right on my face.

Buy two bags so you can rotate them, works for about 20 minutes each time. Refreeze bag make sure you mark it so won't be eaten. Works great! Don't peel it. Let it fall off as burn heels this is to avoid scarring. Tylenol or aspirin for the pain/ If that isn't enough go to Dr. or Er. for professional advice.

One of my best friends burned a hand severely over an open fire due to not realizing that she had splashed her hand with the liquid charcoal fluid that was used in the 70's to start the charcoal briquets. Her husband and children were in town buying the odds and ends for the barbecue so, she was home alone.

She called me and I told her to put her hand in cold water (ice water if she had ice) and my husband and I were on on way over to take her to the hospital. It took about an hour before she was able to keep her hand out of the water with no pain. She also did not feel that she needed to go to the hospital. Her hand healed with no scars.

I also had an aunt that burned her hand with steam when she was canning - probably in the 60's. The method then was to use Vaseline, which she did. It only kept the air off of it but did not help her pain. She also wound up with scars that did eventually fade after a few years. I learned about the cold water from my older brother but have no idea on where he learned it. Maybe in the Army. He was in the army back in the 70's stationed in Germany.

Vitamin E oil (10,000 IU) is great for healing sunburn or burns of any kind. Just be sure to avoid putting it on any broken skin areas.
