I've never had a sunburn before.
I usually don't put sun lotion, which I know is bad for me...

I think aloe vera helps!

I hate sunburns. >.<
Yep, Aloe helps, and you can get gels that help sunburns at the drug store. I find ice also helps a bit too.

I'm very fair skinned so I've had a LOT of sunburn. I put a wet towel in the freezer until it's good and cold and then drape it over my shoulders. My husband claims this is bad and it's a shock to your skin but man... it feels SO much better. As said above, aloe vera is great too. And if you put lots of lotion on it you have less of a chance of peeling. I hope it gets better soon!

It isn't peeling bad but it is going away. I am using Aloe. So nice...
