Yes: are his feet sunburnt? make sure you take an icecube and apply it to the sun burnt area .if it is bad or blistered it needs to have a dressing. make sure you replace his electrolytes with some think like pedialyte calamine lotion should help with the soothing next time use a screen with a high SPF
