The Sunburn of 19 Jun 2007
The Sunburn of 19 Jun 2007
You can't see it in the picture, but I have edema pretty bad from the sunburn. For two days I've been hobbled and barely able to stand.

darling, what exactly did you do to get burnt that badly?

Do we need to go to Costco to get you the big giant fucking bucket of SPF 5324 sunblock?

Keep drinking tons of water and keeping your skin as hydrated as possible.

I'll refrain from scolding you this time. ;)

Wow. Like, wow. I get a sunburn like that every year, which quickly reminds me why I don't like going outside. Hope you're moisturizing. I hope it looks worse than it really is.

Heh. Looks like me last year when I rolled my ankle and got sun burnt. I couldn't even stand due to how bad I got burnt.

OMG! Did you fall asleep in the sun?

I know it's my hippie-solution to all things heat-related -
BUT: wet some cloths with a mixture of tepid/lukewarm water and a liberal amount of apple cider vinegar, then lay those wet cloths over your legs.

It will work wonders for making the heat dissapate quickly.
Try it, I swear it will work (even if it is a little bit stinky)

The pictures were taken 2 days after the burn. By that point there wasn't any heat generation. They are just that red.

A vat of suncreen is something we can get you for your BDay?

You didn't buy any burn gel? It works fast and alleviates pain.
