    ^ Seconded.

    Also, I know it sounds stupid, but try and go to sleep! If you can just last long enough that you fall asleep, you won't feel anything. That logic worked with other injuries I've had anyway.

    Oh.

    Err...sit on a chair (don't lean against the back!) and work or watch TV until you do feel tired? If you still don't want to go to bed, hopefully someone will be up to buy you some aftersun by then.

    The pain and burning associated with a sunburn can be relieved with a number of different remedies applied to the burn site. The skin can be hydrated by applying topical products containing Aloe vera and/or vitamin E, which reduce inflammation. Hydrocortisone cream may also help reduce inflammation and itching. Avoid the use of benzocaine, lidocaine, and butter; these are false remedies which can prevent healing and damage skin but relieve pain. When treating open sores caused by a sunburn, like any other open skin wound, it is best to avoid lotions or other directly-applied ointments. However, antibacterial solutions and gauze can prevent skin infections.

    There are two home remedies which have been known to help. One method involves applying a clean washcloth soaked with cool (not cold) milk, in the form of a cold compress. In addition to the cool temperature, a protein film will form to soothe the pain and the lactic acid will help reduce inflammation. A solution of diluted white cider vinegar (approx. 1 cup in a tub of water) applied in a similar fashion may also ease pain.
