I remember you saying that you were burnt a bit bad the other weekend by your son's baseball games. When I am exposed to sun time and time again, if I go out for a few minutes I get the same thing. Oh it hurts. I find that taking Claritin and Pepcid AC helps with the anti-histamine response. Problem is the Claritin or allergy meds can make you more sun sensitive like the prednisone.
For the rash I found a stuff called Foille, made by Blistex. You can have the Pharmacy special order it for you. It is awesome for burns, natural stuff, and it calms the anger down, rids of blisters and clears up burns asap. The hospitals in Florida use it all the time. I also first tend to put the Benadryl clear on at night to help with the itch as it helps me sleep. The Foille is not expensive, and will also take the burn down right away. Its on the Blistex website to help you locate who carries it or most pharmacies have to special order it :)
It also helps my Lupus rash on the face.
