i went out to a carnival yesterday and i tried to stay in the shade as much as possible but i forgot to put suncream on me (remembered the kids though thank goodness) the tops of my shoulders are so red and burnt i can barely even move. its so sore. i have put a bit od sudocrem on it. thats all i have. i cant find my aloe vera gel anywhere. i cant pick ds2 up cos he puts his hands on my shoulders and it hurts so much. ive got to go shopping later. dreading it. i feel like a lobster!!! I am so mad with myself for forgetting to put cream on
Get calamine lotion when you go shopping, it is the absolute best thing. You look a bit funny with it on though...
You poor thing, I did this last summer, was so worried about ds being fully covered that I forgot about my own shoulders and neck and burnt them worse than they have been since I was a kid. I had forgotten how much it hurts.
