In brief: Sunburn
Apply aloe or moisturizing cream to the affected skin.
Avoid products containing alcohol, which can further dry out skin. Beware of sunburn treatment products containing anesthetics, such as benzocaine. There's little evidence that these products are effective. In some cases, they may even irritate the skin. A mild otc cortisone cream also helps.
