In brief: Sunburn

You can apply topical aloe vera cream if it's minimal.
Next level is an over the counter steroid cream, 1% hydrocortisone cream. If the burn is deeper, you should see a burn specialist.

In brief: Cool and moisturize

Topical cooling will relieve pain immediately.
Refrigerated aloe works best. For highly sensitive areas a topical anesthetic can be used under a physicians direction. Oral antinflammatories such as Ibuprofen can provide relief over the first few days. After cooling apply a rich moisturizer such as aquaphor or biafine.
