Sunburn?

DS (4) was out with my Dad yesterday and burned his shoulders and back. sad There are no blisters or anything but it seems quite painful. I tried a Solarcaine spray but it didn't seem to help. We also tried some ibuprofen, which may just need some time to kick in.

Is there anything you can think of that's worked for you?

A Greek friend swears by putting natural yoghurt on and leaving it for a while. Tricky with a child, I know..

what about aloe vera gel, that usually takes the sting out? i would also suggest ibuprofen, lets hope it kicks in soon, fingers crossed smile
