Sunburn is a familiar consequence of summer fun. While it's best to avoid sunburns (and tans -- they indicate sun damage, too) sometimes despite our best efforts, we still get burned. Have you found a useful home remedy? Have you tried anything that absolutely didn't work? Share your tips and experiences about what works and what doesn't here.
Wet wash cloths and ibuprofen
- I'll start things off with a simple one that I've found to be effective: take a cool bath or shower, or place wet, cold wash cloths on the burn for 10 to 15 minutes several times a day. You can mix baking soda in the water to help relieve the pain. Ibuprofen will also help relieve the pain.
