Did anyone see me changing colors???

I am back from my daughter's camporee...I can barely type...MY ARMS!!!

I would like to strip off every piece of clothing that is rubbing against my neck and shoulders..

I can barely turn my head from left to right and I feel like I am on fire!

WHY????

I got BURNT...I MEAN BURNT..like what you did in "high school" burnt!

It was not till after dinner at camp and someone says..."You look red"....RED????

I look like a crayola crayon... or better yet like this~

Had a great time at Camporee - Next time, we'll pick up sunscreen while we are at the late night Wal_mart trip :)

Oh I am so sorry... I got burnt red once in high school going to Florida to visit my grandma being in the pool for 2 hours. So painful, I am so sorry! I am praying for relief for you!!!!

Tim said...

Oh no! I know how bad that feels. Make sure to use allot of aloe vera lotion to keep the skin form getting to tight and peeling so bad. I do hope you get some relief soon!

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Home remedy but it actually works - I used it on my PD when she was younger and got burnt at a friend's house. The friend's mom didn't put sunscreen on anyone - that's another story:
Brown bags like I used to carry my lunch in ;-)
tear them open, soak them in white vinegar, place on the burn. Will take the burn out. Sounds crazy I know, but it works. They will literally dry out pulling the burn out. xoxo

Sweetie- I have been there- many times. Take some aspirin and use aloe vera for the pain. Hope you feel better soon!:) Lori

Heather said...

Been there done that! Bust out the aloe!

Liz said...

Oh no! I hope you feel better soon!

Darlene said...

OUCH...that hurts. Keep the lotion on it and take tylenol for the pain.

Mrs. S. said...

Ouch! I hate sunburns!!! One of my friends used Nutrogena to make the burning stop. Good luck making it through!!

April said...

Oh, no...did you forget your sunscreen? There's nothing more painful that a bad sunburn...I've had my share! I'm in a habit of putting sunscreen on my face everyday under my makeup and on my body if I'm going to be outside. My dad had a history of skin cancer and my brother was recently diagnosed with melanoma, so I have to be very careful. Hope you get some relief soon!

Jeni said...

OUCH! I hate when that happens. Hope you can find a way to lessen the pain.

Sarah said...

Oh no. I ALWAYS get burned, so I know how you feel! I hope you get to feeling better soon!

A picture would really be appropriate with this post.

Hope you feel better soon.

Jboo said...

Oh no - you poor thing! Do you have some aloe lotion to take the sting out? I hope you're feeling better!

Jan the crazy lady said...

Sorry you have to go through that.

Put the aloe vera in the fridge like the first comment said, I feels so good, and I put a whole bunch on and let it sink in the skin. If you try any miracle cures let us know, I always burn.

Joanna said...

I feel your pain...literally...My stomach is burnt to a crisp! I'm sure that it would crunch lightly if my ears were that good. Oh yes, I know it would.

I love the Hawaiian Tropic Lime Coolada lotion. It makes the pain go away for just a short while...but then I just keep reapplying.

OH no....you poor thing!! Get out the aloe vera.....hope it fades quickly!!

Bless your heart! Hope it heals quickly!

Blue Castle said...

Oh, ouch! Try pouring vinegar over your skin. Regular white vinegar. It will stink a little, but you can stand in the shower, pour it over your skin, wait a few minutes and then rinse it off. It really works. I promise. I've had to do this myself a few times. I hope you don't peel too bad! :)

Did your mother tell you about suntan lotion?????????????????????????????????????????????sunriseside

The Blonde Duck said...

You poor thing! You need cream pie and a giant fridge to crawl into!

Jo said...

Yikes ~ I agree with the aloe suggestion and a doctor once told us taking a warm bath help. It's a tad uncomfortable at first but it helps. Hope you feel better soon!

That vinegar idea may work.

That is so completely miserable to have happen to you! How awful. I hope you have plenty of aloe vera at your home! Poor thing.

OUCH hun! I did that a few weekends ago when Bryce had a baseball game and then a soccer game not too long afterwards. I forgot the sunscreen. BIG MISTAKE! I am a redhead and that does not equal a good combo!
So, I was a Lobster just like you! Hope you're back to normal now hun! xo
