@krisgo48 Bath: Set the water to a cool temperature that's just below lukewarm (that is, not teeth-chattering cold), and relax for 10 to 20 minutes. The temperature will ease the pain, and the water will stop your skin from becoming as irritated. Repeat as often as you need to.
Shower: Again, keep the temperature just below lukewarm and also use a very gently flow or just a sprinkling of water. If it thunders out, your skin will hurt.
Avoid using soap, bath oils, or other detergents as you bathe or shower. Any such products will irritate your skin and possibly make the effects of the sunburn feel even worse.
If you have blisters forming on your skin, take a bath instead of showering. The pressure from the shower might pop your blisters.
When you get out, don't rub your skin dry with a towel. Instead, let yourself air dry, or pat the towel over your skin in small, gentle movements. Hope you feel better :)

Applying aloe vera gel is a good solution for sunburn, but given that your sunburn is really bad, you should probably see a doctor first. There're a number of prescriptive gels that will make you feel better in a few days.

You won't like the way it smells but put a cup of apple cider vinegar in a Luke warm bath and soak in it for like 20 minutes. Then you can try aloe vera on your sunburn.

Cold compresses on the sunburn for about half an hour and try with aloe vera.

Diluted vinegar was the answer to my sun burn... it relieves pain instantly, splash it on every so often for the first day and it
will not hurt again. vinegar neutralizes the skin ph.

Take and put a clean cloth in milk and put it on the burn. It takes the burn feeling out and it doesn't blister, Do several times and the burn and blisters disappear.
