So I got a nasty sunburn this weekend! I totally forgot that I was to avoid ALL sun as much as possible(new medication I'm on). Desperate to get rid of the burn and itch I finally broke down and tried vinegar......yes VINEGAR!! I must say it doesn't take away ALL the itch. I get the odd one here and there, but finally RELIEF!!!!! I tried EVERYTHING before breaking down and pouring the vinegar on! I thought I was going to go mentally insane from the burning itch :'( I wouldn't advise it on already blistered skin or an area with an open wound. There is no BURN from putting it on my sunburn(I thought it would) vinegar=acid=burn....but not the case with a sunburn. Just thought would let everyone know it does work. Works the best if you put it on as soon as you can after the burn.

I've also heard that Javex works when you burn yourself in the kitchen, although I have never tried it

I have always used Solarcaine spray for sun burns and it works well.

I would not be putting bleach on my skin for any reason though, LOL.

When you have a cut they say javex will help disinfect the cut.

I'm being serious! lol I tried solarcaine, aloe, afterburn stuff and about 100 other things! Today my sunburn is gone, no pain, no itching! If you get a sunburn try it on a small part of your burn before you go pouring an entire bottle(which I did all day long) on if you don't believe me!
