Hey Ash, so glad you are home. I was gonna sneak you in some good food. I know how the hospital food looks like baby puke. I didn't go tanning...As soon as I get this burn out I will start again. I will pick you up, we will go together if you are feeling up to it. The mustard is seeming to take the redness out. So maybe in a couple days?

Elizabeth, how long do you keep the mustard on. It's all dry and crusty now. shower off and reapply how often do you think ? 

Bren --- 9 years ago -

my scalp is even burned. I'm sure it's gonna peel and look flaky. Lovely! 

Ashley --- 9 years ago -

Sounds good to me I will be going to Houston the 15th. The food made me so nauseated and I asked for something for my head constantly and the lady treated me like a lil kid and was like go take a shower. Turns out I had a major migrane because of my sinus infection. Then she was nice enough to tell me how handsome Kendal was and they have to ask how many kids you are and after he came in and left she was all is he the father to BOTH kids. I was like *ahem* 

Ashley --- 9 years ago -

Are you going to be up to giving massages? 

Bren --- 9 years ago -

I will be at work tomorrow. I was there today for awhile. I'll tough it out. Can't afford not to work!. 

Bren --- 9 years ago -

It is feeling better already. so by tomorrow I should be fine. 

Jerry and Becca --- 9 years ago -

Ashley, that is crap! What nerve she had 

Jerry and Becca --- 9 years ago -

Brenda, I just keep applying the mustard, and when it starts drying, I rinse it off, and apply new. I've noticed a color change, so it must be taking the red out. I've done it 4 or 5 times, now I'm switching back to the Ocean Potion. I hope as long as I keep applying something to it, hopefully it'll keep moist and not be so bad. 

Bren --- 9 years ago -

I switched to noxzema. Seems to keep it cool, and moist at the same time. I think the color change is coming from the yellow mustard staining the skin. Yellow tones down the red. It did seem to pull out some of the heat. We shall see tomorrow. Best of luck to you. Hope we are all pain free tomorrow! 

Jerry and Becca --- 9 years ago -

Me too. So let me know how the noxema did for you tomorrow. I'm gonna spritz myself with vinegar tonight and see how that works, and add somemore ocean potion. I meant to tell you that I also found that soaking hand towels in milk and laying them on the burns is supposed to help too. That was the first thing I did last night. It didn't take the color out, but the coldness was really refreshing. Hope you have an easy night as far as pain goes. 

Bren --- 9 years ago -

I took my vinegar bath, applied more noxzema. So far so good. I does not ache any more. I'm beat, I'm about to go to bed.. hope your night is restful also. 

Bren --- 9 years ago -

Sunburn looks much better this morning, still some slight soreness on the shoulders. I was so tired, I slept through the night with no problems. Color is finally starting to turn tan. 

Christine --- 9 years ago -

I can honestly say that all I use is Ocean Potion. I just keep reapplying it and the heat leaves and peeling is minimal.
