    Ouch. Vinegar will take the sting out. And I use an allergy anti-itch cream with aloe and vitamin e in it…hope you’re not as red as the pick.

    Yes Vinegar does work and aloe. Try alveno powder bath packets for the itching and the cream is soothing for the itch.

    Gorgeous pick! Bad sunburn ::scolds:: I’m a sunburn veteran, vinegar rocks, so does aloe gel with lanocaine (sp?). Alveno powder and gold bond powder too, gold bond cools it down and just generally feals good and soothing on it. Good luck, I feel for you.

    Yes, I will admit, I am as red as my pick. My shoulders still feel warm to the touch. I was wearing a v-neck tank and a 25mm stone (Larimar Blue Crazy Lace Puff Coin) on a chain. Now I have this red V going down my chest with a 25mm white circle in the middle of it! And yes, it is ok to laugh because I am. I look so goofy!

    Great selection of reds – I have heard of a “farmer’s tan”, but it sounds like you have invented the “beader’s tan”.

    Great Red Pick! Ouchy! All the above! I have even applied ice packs. Vinegar might make you smell like a salad but it does help. Just have to keep a cotton ball handy and keep re apply as needed. (PS it makes hair shiny when used as a rinse, however probably will dry it out also. Old mom’s cure for just about everything)

    Thanks for one of the Favs of the Week everyone! Just a note to everyone… my burn has turned into a tan! Now I look less like Brecciated Jasper and more like Brown Zebra Jasper. I guess I won’t be wearing strapless sun dresses for the rest of the summer because I have some funky tan lines. It’s a good thing I’m a t-shirt kind of girl.
