  • Sun Poisoning, PMLE

    Anyone has it?
    What did you use to treat the itch? I've been using 2.5% hydrocortisone, solarcaine ... and one of them seem to work.
    Went to SeaWorld in San Diego last weekend. Now, I am itch all over the legs and arms. It stared about 8 years ago and I keep getting it every year when summer come. It's SUCK.

    Matrix... come on, you really want medical advice from this group of hoodlums? Just kidding, there may be a doctor in the house for all I know. That sucks that you get afflicated every summer, considering you live in SoCal. Check webmd.com maybe, or a detmetologist or pharmacist even. I think sun poisioning is a short term condition though, maybe you have some type of sun/skin allergy?

    Either way, I feel for you. Any type of skin itch or sun burn is crappy...

      Doctors? I ask them already and what they give me is hydrocortisone and cool water with washcloth. I googling the web and the treatment is the same: hydrocortisone and cool water with washcloth.
      Even my sister (a pharmist) said the same althought she told me to get some lotion with aloe to smooth the paint but that doesn't help either.
      Someone on this board may have the same skin problem as me ....

        If you use vinegar on a sun burn it helps take some of the sting away. Used that trick quite a few times while growing up.

            I just called my mother. She has had the problem for 30+ years. The only thing she has ever had to work is hydrocortisone. But she also said that it takes a long time and many repeat applications to work. She has never been able to get a doctor to give her anything different.

            Have you tried any of the burn creams or sprays that contain a higher percentage of lidocaine than solarcaine?

              I am your god. You will obey me because I know the near-suicide inducing itch of severe sunburn. There is a product called bag balm at walgreens that will allieviate the itching. It smells a little, it's similar to icy-hot in consistency. It's widely used on irritated cow udders (hence the name). Nothing else will do- it's in a little square green metal container- google it up. it's seriously the only reason I am alive today. Was recommended by someone better that a DR.- an Indiana farmer. Once you have it you will see by reading the box- it's awesome stuff. By the way- you owe me 50 bucks for this visit

                  I was gonna suggest the same as well, though I've found it called "udder cream" or something like that.

                    For the pass couple day, I was smell like an automechanic. That Bag Balm is sure smell like bearing grease.
                    Other than the smell, it's kinda messy like Vaseline (Jelly base one).
                    I am not sure Bag Balm really help or because the problem getting better over time. When I had BB on, it still itch but not as intense as before.
                    Thanks for the suggestion e39dream, it add one more product to my "collections"
                    As of now, it's 95% over. Man, it's greate to get back to normal.

                      no problem matrixpc- I had a real bad burn on my back as a kid and that stuff really helps. It's like super moisturizer or something. Anyway glad to hear everything is back up to par.

                        Dam I got it again.
                        Well this time I am not event out in the sun for more than 10 minutes.
                        Over the weekend, I was expecting to go out in the beach for a while. I try to protect myself with some sunblock and bought a tube BananaBoat SPF50.
                        Well after putting it on at home and driving around for a while, I start to feel uncomfortable on the arms (where I put the sunscreen on). Imediately I can tell that something isn't good going to happen. I ran to the restroom and wash it off with soap. 1/2 hr later I can see red dot start to show.
                        The good thing is it only on my wrists and 1/2 way below the elbow. The bad thing is it is 50 worst than sunburn. I got alergic to sunscreen.
                        My arm/wrist got swollen up like a freaking balloon, got dizzy, headache and the blister are as big as 1 sq inch. Almost have to go to the ER.
                        I stop by the doctor to get check out. He gave me a hydrocortisone bills and cream that I have to take in 6 days start with very heavy dose and decrease the dosage everyday.

                        Man this is suck. I think I have to move out of the sunny socal to somewhere.

                          matrix. buy an aloe plant. pure aloe works like a charm on sunburn and pretty good on random rashes
