Does taking a bath with baking soda help with the sunburn at all?

Take a bath in some aveeno. Comes in a cardboard package in the skincare/ lotion aisle of your grocery store. Its really soothing and will take that sting away. Once you get out of the tub immediately put on your aloe or lotion while your skin cells are still water saturated. This will help to hold that moisture in. Other than that, just got to give it time.

I just got a really, REALLY bad sunburn, and it's turning orange-red. Is that like really bad? I've been taking a lot of showers and stuff because it's beginning to flake and the skin is peeling off. Oh yeah, AND IT ITCHES LIKE NO TOMORROW!!! If anyone has any advice or thinks that my burn is really serious, please tell me. Thank you for your time.

I thought that baking soda baths was best for chicken pox, not sunburns.

I think there are mixed opinions on this one - and I don't really have a set opinion. I'm sure she didn't intentionally let her kids get burned. But in this day and age, with all that we know about melanoma and skin cancer, I would think parents should be taking more responsibility in preventing their kids from being burned so badly. All it takes is one bad sunburn to cause skin trouble...hope these kids don't suffer in the future.

Did you hear that they just charged a women for neglect for not having sunscreen on her kids?? I am all for protection of the health of children, of course, but isn't this a little over board?

I don't know where you are right now, but I'd stay out of the sun-- you don't want to make it worse. I had a sunburn last year on my honeymoon and I didn't want to miss a day of snorkling, so I wore extra sun screen the next day, and it was 30SPF...by the end of the second day I had blisters all over my back, neck and backs of my legs.

I was told that you shouldn't take a cold shower for a sunburn...it is too much of a shock for your skin. If you take a bath or something, the water should be luke warm.

I have very fair skin and burn very easily - usually I end up taking a cold shower when I am sunburned - aloe and Noxzema are really soothing, as well...good luck!
