Sunburn relief
suggested by Rhonda on Tuesday, June 3, 2008

When I get sunburns, I rub Noxzema skin care on the burned area to help relieve the burning sensation. After taking a (slightly cool) shower rub a good mask of the noxzema on the burned area and let it sit. Once it has dried apply another coat. It will not eliminate the sunburn but it will relieve a majority of the pain. This is a trick that I learned several years ago on the farm after sun burning by lower back so bad that I could not stand.

You won't make many friends, but this takes hot sting out. As soon after burn as possible, before shower, anything, rub can cream over entire surface that is burned. Leave on, you won't smell to good, it will sour, that is when it is working. But results is well worth the hurt, if ya ever had a bad sunburn, blisters. After awhile, shower, pat dry, repeat.
