On the plus side, the vinegar did actually help with the sunburn (in that it doesn't itch anymore).
Oh jolly, I am happy it worked.
My first encounter with vinegars anti itch and soothing effect was when I swam in to a Burning Jellyfish, it affected 75% of my body and face. A
friend recommended vinegar since I hadn't done the proper first aid, to rub my self in sand. It did the job.
However, my arms hurt from the rowing, legs hurt from the mile hike I did after, and I'm still redder than a tomato.
Stretching has all ways helped me, even though it is pain full, and for the "tomato flare", if you can handle tomato paste with added water, drink it.
Tomato juice has to much salt, thus paste. And vitamin C. Your body is fighting an intrusion.
Olive oil or aloe juice will help prevent damage. Olive oil is the cheapest.
Sorry I am giving advice with out you asking, but sunburn is nasty.
It's a shame, because I would have normally spent the day outside, but instead I ended up staying in, with the blinds drawn. I'll be going out later
tonight at dusk, just so I can watch some fireworks from afar. I could walk out to see some, but right now it's probably not the best idea, seeing as
I have work tomorrow.
