Does Aloe Vera gel have to be rinsed out when applied to the hair? Where can I buy it from?

What is the best home remedy besides aloe vera to take care of a child’s sunburn?
My 2 year old and I have been playing outside all day, and I used sunscreen on him but his shoulders and neck still look red… I have him slathered in aloe vera but I was wondering if anyone has a better home remedy to keep him from being sore or peeling. Thanks!

I’m fair complexioned and have found aloe vera to be the best. But if peeling starts, one thing doctors have told me in the past is to soak a washcloth in cool tea and apply it to the burned skin. The tannins in the tea soothe the skin.

What are other methods of getting rid of a sunburn besides aloe vera?
I have used aloe vera in the past and it doesn’t help my skin at all! If anything it makes the pain worse. Anyways yesterday I got a sunburn that covers about 80% of my backside, and it has been burning up and like stinging and aching like crazy. I need a way to relieve the pain quick. Please and Thank You!

If your in pain you need to get calamine lotion. Put it in the fridge so when it is applied it is cold and helps ease the pain completely. If it is what I had, it gets worse at night due to prickly heat. Definitely use the lotion at night and during the day plenty of moisturizer. Hope this helps.

How to relieve sunburn pain besides aloe vera?
I have terrible sunburn all down the back of my legs, so I can’t walk, and can only sit. I’ve used half a bottle of aloe vera since yesterday. I’ve put wet rags under my legs, and I’ve prayed for the pain to stop, but it still hurts. Any cost-free home remedy to make it stop hurting?

try spritzing on a 50/50 mixture of water/ vinegar. you will smell bad but the pain will ease up. Also, there is this lotion that I have come to rely on called Sarna. its a little pricey but works miracles for severe sunburns! for the pain I would use an OTC pain reliever like Aleeve b/c its an anti inflammatory. Cost free remedy would go with the vinegar/ water combo/ goodluck hope that this helps!!!!!
