my little guy, 5 years old, got a terrible sunburn earlier this year. i was so heartbroken at his crying and whimpering over the pain. first i gave him tylenol for some of the pain. i soothed him for a day by bathing him in milk and baking soda in lukewarm water. he loves bathtime so he really dug that. i added some oatmeal for good measure. after and between the baths i sprayed solarcaine on his sunburn and put him in soft cotton clothes. as a mom it made us both feel better to have some relief and some attention taken off his sunburn at 'bathtime'. i kept neosporin on the peeling parts when peeling started to make sure he didn't pull too much skin off and get infected. two weeks later no sign of any damage and we are sunburn free. from now on he doesn't get anywhere near the sun without spf 30 or above. lesson learned.
