My husband put sunscreen on but accidentally forgot his neck. For two days he couldn’t wear anything that touched his neck, including most of his T-shirts, because it hurt too much. The moral of the story – don’t underestimate the power of the sun and slather on that SPF 30+!

Bad sunburn on neck forgot sunscreen pain

    Oh wow! That looks painful!! I reminded my husband to reapply every couple hours when he worked outside this weekend. I don’t burn like that – thank goodness!

      I should have thought to remind him as well. We were so hectic getting ready to go to the picnic that we all totally neglected the sunscreen. I don’t burn like him but I did get a bit – the sun was SUPER strong that day.

    Ouch! Sunburn is sonot fun! My daughter stayed home yesterday because she got sunburn at school on Monday from being outside for Track & Field day ALL day with no shade. Try putting some vinegar on it to help take the heat out of it a bit!

      Oh, poor thing! People forget how much damage being in the sun can cause. Never heard of using vinegar, only aloe vera aftersun. I hope your daughter’s feeling better now!

    Ooh! Lobster man! Ha! My sister once got so sunburned, that she fainted where she worked. Luckily she was working at that time in a hospital. Help was not far away. They told her to go home and quit baking so much in the sun!

      Oh no! Sunburns are so dangerous because it can lead to skin cancer. I’m glad your sister got immediate help but I can’t imagine fainting – she must have also gotten some kind of sunstroke.

      Oh no, you’ve got to watch those fair-skinned types. My hubs keeps telling me that he wasn’t made for the sun here (being from the Netherlands originally). We slathered that aloe vera on until the burn subsided!

    Oh NO! My husband has really fair skin and I’ve found that putting coconut oil on his skin after he’s been in the sun too long will help reduce and sometimes prevent a sunburn. I hope he’s feeling better!
