FAK! I got a nasty sunburn on my back and shoulders on Monday. Now it is itching LIKE CRAZY!
I saw the pharmacist this evening. He recommended spraying on some Solarcaine. Never tried it before, and have to say it doesn't do SQUAT. In fact, I'd say it actually triggered the itching! Because before I applied it I didn't have much itch.
I'm dieing here. The wife is sleeping on the couch because I can't lie still. A cold compress doesn't help. The only relief I get is gently swishing a tea-towel on my back -- but that won't let me get to sleep! But if I stop with the towel I immediately go into the herky-jerky dance.
ACK! I learned my lesson. SUNSCREEN -- USE IT!
