I put factor 50 on my dss at the weekend and ds1 burnt anyway! Forgot they have a short shelf life and I used the botle from last year!

Not much to do except slap moisturiser on (doesn't have to be 'aftersun' specifically). I've been using Aveeno as we have it for ds2s excema anyway. Ds1 doesn't seem in the least bit bothered. Cool baths and cold water flannels on it if it bothers him, just the same as a 'normal' burn/scald.

if you can get some use aloe vera gel.....fab for sunburn and takes the sting right out.

I know, I use sunblock and still burn<<sigh>>.
