RED, ITCHY BUMPS after a sunburn peel

If I burn, it normally turns to a tan, but this time I peeled all over my neck and back.  There are now red bumps (about the size of a mosquito bite) all over my back and neck where I peeled.  They are EXTREMELY itchy.  I've been putting aloe cream and baby oil on it, but it's not helping.  Can you give me some advice?  THANKS!!

The bumps could be a sign of sun poisoning rather then just a tan/burn.  You should have a doctor take a look at them.  You can also put aleo vera gel on them- that should help soothe it, if it is from the sun.
