Whenever, you are dealing with pain medication and a younger person, you need to consult with a physician on what to use and how much. Pain medication is given out by weight and age. The pain will most likely be treated better with a medicine for the skin.

Just like rtift said....vinegar. I know this sound strange, but what really worked for me was when my Mom removed my clothes, sat me down in an empty bathtub, and slowly poured white vinegar (clear) over my sunburn. It really took the pain away (the down side is that I smelled like a salad but it was a good trade-off). Give it a try.....and no medication needed.
