Cool and ease: Cool and ease the pain. Topical aloe vera may help with that as well. Bad sunburns can actually be partially helped by motrin, which works as an anti-inflammatory and topical 1% otc hydrocortisone. Blistery lesions or open lesions should not be messed with without seeing a physician first. Any fever, or more significant symptoms should be seen by a physician as well.
