Daughter and Son both went to Daughter's friend's house at the weekend, to play in their outdoor pool.
Unfortunately, ruining their lovely fun, Daughter got sunburn. It isn't too bad, but it does hurt her an awful lot.
It's all over her arms, shoulders, face and chest, and a little on her back. I have to keep applying E45 cream and After-Sun lotion onto these parts, and it's not easy. I hate seeing the look on her face when I touch the sore parts, watching her hurt. I just wish that it was a little milder.

So, we know that E45 cream hydrates the skin, but I need a good lotion/cream that helps soothe and ease the pain properly, and so far all I've had is the After-sun lotion, which is quite good, and Benadryl, which wasn't so successful.
Any ideas?
Much appreciated.

Straight aloe vera? That always seems to work over here!

Thanks, I'll have to try that, all I've thought of since is calamine.
