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!

Best Suggestion

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.
