I use sunscreen& either burn or breakout. Use fluticasone propionate cream, calamin lotion, lotrisone (clotrimazole and betamethasone) cream on sunburn? If not wants good to use?

In brief: Apply cool...

...Washcloths often, and take Ibuprofen to decrease the pain and inflammation.
If you burn after applying a sunscreen, you are not using one that is strong enough, or applying it often enough. Breakouts are usually from the vehicle. So choose a spray or thin lotion with a high spf (55 or higher) and apply it often while you are in the sun.

Some people get a photoallergic reaction from the active ingredients in sunscreen. You will need to find out which ingredient may be the culprit or consider a pure zinc oxide sunscreen.
