Hi Loverbee,

Anything with a high ALOE content is your best bet. We have the plants growing in our courtyard, but any cream or lotion is great!

Take some tea bags and make a batch of boiled tea. Place tea in the refridgerator to cool. Once it has cooled dip a rag in and dab on burned area. Or put the tea in a spritz bottle and spritz it on you while standing in the shower.

The tannic acid in the tea will turn the burn to tan. It was used in burn wards for years.

I worked in a restaurant and they had this spray stuff with tannic acid for the cooks, and it healed their burns right up.

Good luck to you.

My son was so burned on his feet last summer that he couldnt even walk, I ended up taking him into the doc and he gave him some burn cream, the thing that helped the most was Motrin, or Ibuprophen (I cant spell) he still couldnt move well but he was able to at least sit and watch a movie with out being in horrid pain.

good luck.
I feel for you..

Loverbee, I have always used generic tea- black tea or orange pekoe. You know? I'm thinking that mint tea might be soothing and cooling?

The funniest part is that I went for a ten minute walk and this is what I get. I know it will turn to tan in two days but right now this kind of sux.

I took some motrin and I am beginning to feel slightly better. Guess I am just going to be taking it easy a little for the next few days.

I may spell this wrong, but try Noxema. It is a type of cold cream. I've even used the store brand instead of the name brand. It is very cooling right on contact & lasts longer than aloe vera (on me at least).

Have you tried soaking in a cool tub? I'd have to look on-line, but I think there is a soothing oatmeal bath remedy as well. Oatmeal baths are recommended for people with exzema... so maybe it will work for you too.

I hope you feel better soon. Whenever I go out, as I am fair skinned as well, I put on the same stuff I put on my kids. SPF45! lol, it works though.

When my evil x brought my kids home burned to 2nd degree burns, my dad called the ol country doc and he told him to crush asprin into milk of magnesia and keep it rubbed in.

it truly did work well.

Thanks mamacinnamon...I am starting to get sleepy and i sprayed myself with some soothing refridgerated black tea that also has lavendar and vanilla in it. I never like the way it tasted but I love the way it feels.
