“My mom is not willing to give to the world her cure for sunburns, fortunately.”

Placing wet/damp tea bags (especially green tea ) helps as doea aloe vera. Calmoseptine is also very soothing.
Milk of Magnesia – This really does work, just keep applying and letting it dry about three or four times before bed. It is a “chalking” mess once it starts drying but it works every time. A nurse told me about it…
He looks like an extra from the movie ‘The Serpent and the Rainbow’……

This reminded me of my Grandma’s (RIP) remedy for “taking the sting off” with sunburns: rubbing alcohol. However, she did this after I was so badly sunburned at her house that I was covered in blisters that were cracking open >.<
My grandmother used vinegar…not only burnt like a lobster….smelling like a salad!
Am I the only one who is deeply disturbed by the drapes?
One can only speculate why his left hand (and ears) remained untreated …
My mom used to put white vinegar on my sunburns. Trust me, you got off easy.
he was infuenced by the movie “Powder”
Looks like my mom’s Noxema cure.
Total Charlie Brown moment.
Shoot, another nightmare.
Oh, I believe I know your cure. A dear old lady in Brazil chased my DD down and doused her all night long after a particularly nasty burn. The next morning she was as pretty and pale as the day before her mid day ride. There is no physical or physiological reason why this should work, but it does every time. So, if you are severly burned, keep applying milk of magnesia to return your skin to it’s pre-burn condition.
Wow I hope I never have the opportunity to try this !

The bedspread used to be plaid, now it’s floured.
Poor kiddodo, hope you got over your burn. I never heard of corn starch for sun burn but he looks like it isn’t working anyway.
That is truly frightening. I mean, nightmare inducing frightening.
I like turtles.
Looks like a giant Smurf, poor kid.
A reverse Smurf: white with blue pants, not blue with white pants.
It puts the lotion on or its gets grounded.
now that’s funny LOLOLOL
Oh do I feel for you …. When I was 4 my then 13 yr old sister left me on a beach in the Bahamas all day long with no sunscreen – I ended up in a burn ward and came home literally plastered from neck on down. M’y motter – who for some reason was not on the trip- made sure there were plenty of polaroids to immortalize my burn. Luckily none survived the 70s!
I hope you recovered from your burn! Sounds so terrible! What’s your relationship like with your sister?
No No NO… the SPF 450 goes on BEFORE you burn… not after
I like turtles!
Nice! Of course now those three words are going on a loop in my mind.
the look in your eyes doesn’t convince me that your mom’s remedy really takes the sting out.
Corn Starch. My mom would do that to us as kids as well, maybe not as drastic, but it did sooth.
