    I've always used pure aloe gel on mine.

    I go to the healthfood store and buy a concentrate of the stuff meant for people to drink. I use that. I think mine is Lily of the Desert brand.

    To save it, pour some in small, dark, glass dropper bottles. I keep one in the kitchen, one somewhere else. If you never touch it with your fingers, because there are no preservatives in it, it will last years. Keep it in a cool place. For me that's under the sink.

    I'm sorry you got a burn, and hope it heals fast!

    get ocean potion brand of aloe at walmart, the blue one has menthol, liticane, and tea tree oil. it'll take the pain away within minutes. We even used it on a white pig that has a sunburn. He'd been sleeping in the sun. You couldn't touch him,,,,,,5 minutes later he was back for luvin. I keep it near the kitchen in case I burn myself cooking. Works GREAT.

    I love kennywood park!! I used to go there every year with my friends. My fil was employed there for over 35 years as one of the main carpenters and he built all the picnic areas, gazebos and repaired the thunderbolt when needed. So many memories.
    Now about your sunburn. Is it blistering? If not I would just apply some aloe with no fragrances. If so you might need to go to the er or doc to get some silvadene creme We use that on our burn patients and helps heal, but hurts trying to remove it.
     
  7. use regular hair condition straight out of the bottle and do not wash off

    Refrigerate the aloe. It will make it feel a lot better quicker. However, it is only temporary. But, the cold aloe feels sooooo goooood! [​IMG]

    Watermelon----Take a slice and rub it over the burn. It doesn't leave you stick and it takes the heat out of the burn. I am very fair skinned and any length of time in the sun results in a burn.
