hmm...I have never heard of taking an antihistamine for sunburn. I will have to try that next time. I knew I had gotten too much sun so I took some ibuprofin and lathered in aloe right away.
I will have to get some epsom salt. I used to have it on hand all the time when I had my horse but not anymore. Its still early in the season too so I haven't stocked up on the summer essentials like sunscreen, bug repellant and anti-itch stuff.
