In brief: Prednisone
For very severe sunburns where it develops a sun poisoning like effect systemic or oral stereos are helpful to calm the inflammation.
It is best to avoid systemic steroids in diabetics and people with high blood pressure.

In brief: Topical
Aloe vera lotion or a steroid (hydrocortisone) may be used for the irritated skin.
Any moisterising lotion may be tried as well. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) is another choice, but that is dispensed by prescription.
