    What's the best remedy for bad sunburn?

    Aloe Vera lotion. Also Vinegar (or half water, half vinegar) in a spray bottle. Apply it to your burned areas. Tylenol if it's really painful.

    It depends on how bad. Aloe vera gel (not the lotion, it holds in heat -- 100% gel if available) is the best for bad sunburns that do not require medical attention. The recommendation is that any burn, including sunburn, which is accompanied by a blistered area larger than a quarter should have medical attention due to the risk of infection.

    Aloe Vera. That's all I got! Oh, and maybe stay out of the sun for a while.

    Yes – Aloe Vera gel. If you put it in the fridge first before you apply it, it will be nice and cool and will hopefully cool the sunburn, and plus it feels good on sunburnt areas when it’s cold. Although if it is really bad, then you should seek medical attention.

    Thanks you guys! My stepson got roasted the other day at the lake. I felt bad for the guy. We tried aloe vera, I'll see how he feels later today.

    When I was a jr high kid I got a severe 2nd degree sunburn. My mom made me take vinegar baths. Helped a little.

    Natural yoghurt spread over the sunburn works almost instantly to take away the pain. If left on for 30 mins or so before being GENTLY rinsed off then the effect lasts for quite a few hours. You could use any type of yoghurt but you may end up covered in strawberries or cherries! Yoghurt has the advantage that many of us would have it available in the fridge anyway, so it's already on hand and cheap.

    aloe vera. they usually sell it at your local pharmacy in gels, creams, lotions and any other form you can think of.
    the aloe vera removes the burn as well as helping your skin to heal.
