GUEST,Lilyfestre BS: Sailing and Sunburn (31) RE: BS: Sailing and Sunburn 29 Jul 04


Three weeks ago I attended an all day bluegrass event (outside) and I am STILL burned and peeling. I burned my legs so badly (yep...even WITH SPF 45 sunscreen!) that I couldn't walk for 2 days. I tried aloe, Lanacaine, cold cream....the only thing that brought any relief to me was to cover my legs with a cold cloth. I tried a soft towel but all that did was stick to my legs and then had to be peeled off....._()&(*&^%@$%#%*&^ OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!   Also, on top of the cool, damp COTTON cloth, I made an ice pack and wrapped it in a tee shirt and put that on the most sore spots. It was recommended to me to also try using a silky, cool damp cloth...since I don't have such a thing, the cotton worked well. When I was able to walk, I made my way to the Dr. and he gave me extra strength motrin and something with codeine so I could indulge in a pain-free, restful night.

I am still red and peeling but it no longer hurts. I realize you posted this a few days ago...I hope you are feeling better and that if you aren't, maybe something here will be of help.
