In brief: Wet soaks/sunscreen

"sun poisoning" is just severe sunburn.
It should be treated with cool washcloths applied as often as feasible, and Ibuprofen or a similar anti-inflammatory for the pain and inflammation. You can prevent it by applying a good broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion every day, and reapplying it frequently while you are in the sun.
