Aspirin or other nsaids such as allege, Motrin can help with swelling. Cold milk compresses 5 minutes a hour will decrease temperature followed by aloe vera for its soothing properties.

Soak some washcloths or small towels in cool water and apply them to the burned areas. And learn mr. Sun's lesson: apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion whenever you go out in the sun!
