The sunburn was apparently worse than I thought. Over the course of the evening, I've gradually turned a brighter and brighter shade of red.

Of course, the Lidocaine stuff I bought for it hasn't done shit. Wouldn't that be ironic ... I'm uber-sensitive to most drugs (like Sudafed and caffeine), but (apparently) resistant to anesthetics. :p

I think I'm up to twice the recommended dosage now. You'd think I'd feel numb, or dizzy, or something out of the ordinary. ;P

Actually, I shouldn't say that ... I think it is helping somewhat. But a cold shower seemed to help more. :p

from years of sunburn since I've lived in tropical places, I solidly recommend finding a good after-sun moistuirizer more than any other thing. Find one with aloe vera and vitaman E, and apply librelly to affected areas, rubbing it in slowly (best done by a loving partner).
There are no actual drugs in it, but instead it fixes up the skin. Put it on right after you shower, twice a day (morning when you get up, and evening before you go to bed, and any other times sunburn is really hurting you), and you'll feel a world of difference. Right down to minimzing peeling (since the burnt skin doesn't die out and dry, but actually heals).

Thanks for the advice. Other people suggested it too.

I'm wondering how much I should be putting on ... I thought I applied it pretty liberally this morning after my shower, but my skin still feels as dry as usual. :p

I think I'll just have to keep after it every couple hours or so...
