@hilsy85: You have sun poisoning.  Typically happens with a bad sunburn.  Try putting vinegar to the burn.  It’s painful at first, but it relieves the pain.

@hilsy85: I’d put aloe on it to keep it moisturized as well.  But vinegar definitely helps with the heat/burn.

I’ve had a burn like that once before. I think once is enough, lol. It’s just the natural progession of the burn. I used aloe gel and let it run it’s course. The skin will probably peel next – so sexy! πŸ˜‰

Don’t worry too much, hope you feel better!

I had this a couple weeks ago. Honestly the best thing ever was tea. Make tea on the stove and once it’s cooled use a wash cloth and soak it in the tea and then put on the burn. The tea pulls the heat out and helps it heal quicker. I did it and it was the best relief ever. I had to do it a couple times, but soo much better than vinegar IMO

@hilsy85: No. No she was not. No, no, no. Ahhh! Lol. That is SO bad. I would have said something to her for sure. Or switched cars… something!

@hilsy85: blehhh Im going to vom!!

Dont feel like an idiot. On Easter, my husband and I drove 1.5 hours in his convertible around noon when the sun was very bright and strong. I was wearing a sundress and didnt even think about sunscreen! And then I had a very oddly placed, seat belt shaped sunburn!

I am no nurse, but I live in Arizona! πŸ™‚ Lol And I love the outdoors, so I’ve had more sunburns then…. Well, then I should have. The blisters/bubbles are TOTALLY normal. It happens when you perspire and it gets trapped under your now dead skin…. Really gross, but totally ok. πŸ™‚ It should now just peel over the next day or two. I take an Ibuprofin (sp?) or two as well. It seems to help, but maybe it’s my placibo. πŸ™‚

I have never heard of tea before! I;ll have to keep that in mind…

Oh, and the lady on the subway… NO! SHE WASN’T?! Lol

Good luck and hope you feel better soon…
