Washcloth soaked in milk, drape it over the burn.

No advice for now, but get a better sunscreen. Your skin gets burnt easier while pregnant!

That happened to me when I was pregnant as well- sucked butt!



I just used after sun and aloe.



Take a cool bath to take some of the burn out.

They make that aloe juice my cousin said when she gets sunburnt she drinks that. I asked her if it was nasty and she said it just tastes like regular juice.

Aloe juice is great for a lot of different things but you must do flavored because plain aloe does taste like shit. I usually buy mango aloe juice.

so sorry to hear that. Also check your sunscreen to make sure its not expired. I used sunscreen from the previous season thinking it would be okay (not even technically expired) and I had the WORST case of sun burn ever. It was so bad that I was swollen all over. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon.
