Has anyone ever had a sunburn on their legs so bad they couldn't walk? I tried to get up this morning and the pain is unbearable. Any remedies? I'm using aloe Vera, drinking water and taking anti inflammatory medicine. Any other suggestions?

Keep wet washcloths on the burn. The hope is to draw some of the heat out of the deeper tissues. So not only pain relief, but potentially reducing the radiation damage.

While I was in college, I made the terrible decision to go to Talladega with no sunscreen and no hat. I became a lifelong advocate for SPF 50 the next day.
I had a sorta similar experience. Went snorkeling while down at Grand Cayman when I was 19...completely forgot to apply sunscreen or at least throw on one of those rashguard shirts. After a whole morning of my back being fried, it was a painful several days following (in particular on the flight back).

If you have access to Lavender essential oil, it works but make sure it is from a trusted source and not a "knock off" brand. My wife uses it for burns and it does help.

Cold water bath. That is about all you can do.

Put your burn medicine in the refrigerator and when you put it on its fantastic for a little while. I've been there before when I was a teenager and had to miss three or four days of work and couldn't wear pants because of it.

Never had it that bad, but when I have hot water helped. Especially like a hot tub at the beach when I'd get burned.

My neighbors daughter who’s still breastfeeding her 2 year old told me breast milk is almost magical and can cure all kinds of things for her child from skin rashes to eye infections. I’d suggest you find a lactating lady and give that a try. If nothing else it should take your mind off the sunburn for a while!

Take the shotgun approach and get a lactating lady to rub you down with dung from hemp-fed cows.
