I recently had an extremely severe sunburn that has since gotten alot better, but i am now left with this incessant itch where the sunburn was the worst. How long can i expect this itch to last? What are some treatment ideas? thanks

There are many types of creams on the market specifically for use after you get a sunburn or for any skin irritation. Go to your local pharmacy and look at all the selections. Ask a clerk or the pharmacist if you get confused.

Bob,
I live at 7100 feet elevation in Colorado and suffered from the exact same problem. My dermatologist gave me a prescription for Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USA 0.1%. it works very well. Ask your dermatologist.
