Only some parts of my Sunburn is burning so bad

I got sunburned on my chest, back, shoulders, and arms...2 days ago. It didn't hurt the first night...it didn't hurt the 2nd ..but dismorning it is burning so bad.. like unconditionally burning..it literally feels like fire ants on my chest. It only happens when I take my shirt off...And I can't do ANYTHING about it.. it only hurts on my chest...And I've been putting some kinda lotion on it the first 2 nights..why is it hurting SO bad... I've never felt anything like this..

Take ibuprofen, it will bring down the swelling. Take cool showers on gentle setting. Apply some aloe vera. Avoid the sun. If you have to go back out, make sure you cover up. It's gonna take a little time to heal. Get better and remember to wear sunscreen!

This isn't a normal sunburn... I'm wondering if it's a allergic reaction or Sun poisoning.. I've had Sun burn a lot... but never have I felt a pain like this from a sunburn

Cold wet tea and tea bags. Or sop a cloth with white vinegar will take the sting right out

aloe vera is the best... dont use 1% hydrocortisone cream that doesnt do anything just dont go into the sun while your burn is healing
you can buy aloe vera at walmart

Sounds like something else may be irritating the skin that's exposed. Go to the doctors. Best answer anyone on here can give you. Unless they are a doctor no one should give med advice.stop using the lotion you're using may be a reaction and don't use anything else either it may make it worse. No one here knows why your burning so it isn't a wise idea to take suggestions from non professionals. Just trying to save you possible worse reaction
