Help?!? Can I put aloe on my severe peeling sunburn? I'm very uncomfortable so I tried it and now areas are stinging and hurting not the whole burn

Discontinue: Anytime you put something on an open area of skin, like a burn, and it hurts more, you should discontinue it. It may be the aloe, but it may also be preservatives or other chemicals in the aloe cream that are causing the worsening of pain. If you are that uncomfortable, take ibuprofen, put cool (not cold) compresses on the burn area and change often. If that does not help, you need to see doc! ...Read more

USE SUNSCREEN: Any kind of oil like cocoa butter will magnify the sun's rays and make you more likely to burn. You should use a labeled sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every 2-3 hours, more often if swimming or sweating. Aloe will help AFTER you burn, but does little to prevent and it is far better never to burn. ...Read more
