My MW told me that due to melanin production I would find that I'd tan really easily and not burn at all - haha how wrong was she?! I burned within an hour on holiday (normally never burn) and the burns lasted for 4 days. Half my holiday I could barely move!
agreed - rubbish midwife advice! it's a burn, after all, so keep it cool (not cold because direct contact with really cold stuff can also "burn" the skin) - try putting a towel in the fridge. and try not to get burnt again
