Hi, I got a sunburn and an itch I have is DRIVING. ME. CRAZY. Can anyone tell me the why my sunburn got so itchy and how I can cure it?
They sell lidocaine/menthol gels in convenience stores that can be used to numb it up a little. You fried your skin and damaged it. Your body is releasing a bunch of cytokines to eat up the dead tissue and repair. Some of the cytokines released can cause itchiness. Don't damage your skin next time.
