Q: 

Is there home remedy for sunburn pain?

A: You should really get it checked out. My stepfather sunburned the top of his feet once and it got infected. Now he is completely immobile because the infection was so bad. He''s considered handicapped and cannot work or get around without a cane. Whatever you do, don''t try to work with the burn. If you put too much strain on it before it heals you could end up like my stepfather. Treat this seriously because sunburns are more serious than many people think. Go to the doctor and seek medical attention. I have found that teatree (also called Melaleuca) to do wonders for when my pale skin gets scorched. You can buy it in the stores as a cool rub... many times they will actually combine it...

Q:

Rechill as needed (or just have a second cold cloth waiting in the fridge).. @Jude I forget, I just have heard that it is effective in treating sunburn.

Q: 

What is the best home remedies for sunburn.... I would really like to know some that would work faster?

A: 1 Plain Alka-Seltzer tablet in 240 ml&''s of plain water, place a piece of lint or clean swab in and soak up enough mixture to keep it moist, and place on sunburn you will get instant relief.

She returned home with no apparent sunburn remaining, whilst her twin still had a little (gone 2 days later with just the fresh aloe). I use pure essential oil of Lavender on
Q: 

What is the best home remedy for a blocked nose?

A: Steam inhalation with a small amount of Vicks vaporub put in the hot water jar.. Saline spray is good, so is Afrin. Then lie down for a while with your blocked nostril up -- i.e., say your left nostril is blocked, lie with your right ear on the pillow. Strangely (or maybe nature meant it to be that way), this somethimes help clear the nostril just due to the angle the nasal passage is formed at and the position in which you''re lying. Lots of mosture. A long HOT bath/shower, humidifier, maybe a rub of VICKS. Don''t rush it, and don''t blow hard to fix it. Lots of moisture ok. INHALATION:in boiling water add 2or3 drops of eucalyptus oil. it really works. http://www.olbas.com/testimonials.htm ...


Q: 

Is there a home remedy for sun burn?

A: Sun burn does not usually require any medical treatment, and can be handled quite effectively using home remedies. Excessive exposure to sunlight causes the skin, and sometimes other tissue as well, to burn, resulting in inflammation and several other problems. In some cases, the effect of the sun exposure is mild, only involving some inflammation, stinging, and pain, but in other cases, sunburn can be quite severe, with formation of blisters, fever, dizziness, and dehydration. In such cases, it is very important to get medical treatment, and sometimes hospitalization may also be needed. In very severe cases, sunburn can be fatal if not attended to promptly....
Q: 

hi, I am suffering from sun allergy. Whenever I go outside and face the sun there''s this irritation of the skin and itching. Kindly suggest some home remedies for itching

A: Irritation of the skin and itching felt after exposure to the sun is usually a symptom of sunburn, caused by excessive exposure to the sun''s harmful rays. It could also be due to a sun allergy, in which the skin exposed to the sun breaks in a red, itchy rash which could even develop into hives or small blisters. Though the main reason for sun allergy has not yet been established, there are speculations that it occurs due to changes in the skin following exposure to the sun''s rays. Prevention is better than cure and treatment for sun allergy also begins with prevention. Before stepping out, you should always apply a good sunscreen lotion with sun protection favor (SPF) of at least 15 and a...
