My three yr old daughter got sunburned now she's getting blisters, what should I do? I've been putting aloe on it but it's still blistering.

With blisters you should take her to the doctor. But also good quality coconut oil is suppose to be great for treating sunburns and is very moisturizing. :-)

Olive oil works best i know it sounds crazy but as soon as a burn starts to appear if you rub olive oil in and leave it on the burn it treated and turns to tan! I never tan i am irish and always burn I tried this and will never use anything esle again! Its so great!

She needs to see a doctor. I have had sunburn before, and it has been bad, and I have never gotten a blister. Did she not have any sunscreen on? How long was she outside for?

I believe any burn with blisters is considered a 2nd degree burn and I would take her to the doctors. Any burn with open blisters could get infected which is more serious then the actually burn.

If it's blistering I would take her to the Dr. My mom got third degree burns from too much sun and it blistered I think.

solarcaine is a sunburn relief spray. its wonderful! we use it for sunburns too. also bactine is an antibacterial spray with numbing stuff so it helps take some of the pain away. i use the sprays on my little ones

Not a lot you can do now, the damage is done. Just keep up with the aloe and ALWAYS remember the sunscreen in the future.
