Aloe or burn relief spray or camomille .. I would call the ob first tho and ask their opinion on what's best during pregnancy. As long as tpu don't have symptoms of heat stroke or sun poisoning you should be OK

Aloe Vera gel can help with pain a little bit but check out some burn cream at your local stores. When I was really sunburnt, it didn't affect my baby at all.

Ohh I know what you mean. I got burnt so bad a couple weeks ago. Mostly on my stomach! I had on a 2 piece. And in 22 weeks pregnant. I was wondering the same thing. Will it hurt my baby. My Dr said no but just keep moisturizing it. I put aloe aloe lotion reg lotion. But I found that coco butter lotion took the redness away the fastest. It hurt so bad! Owas I embarrassed to get my ultrasound done. They looked at my stomach and said oh my goodness. Lol

if your face is blistering, it is a sign of sun poisoning. you should go to the doctors and they can give you a burn ointment. when i had sun poisoning, i was prescribed this cream that helped ALOT! but i wasnt pregnant at the time. you just need to contact your obgyn to double check. should still be safe.  the worst is being in pain with sun burn AND pregnancy aches.best of luck

Blistering is a sign of 2nd-3rd degree burns, so you wanna talk to your doctor about what to use for sure. I had 2nd degree burns at 28 weeks when I was pregnant and my midwife had me use hydrocortisone and it was so much better after a few days.
