Fact: Many teens in the US have pregnancy as their main worry- which is only one risk to worry about when you're sexually active. If you are sexually active, it's healthy to have STI tests. Please, get tested.

I agree w/ the aloe vera gel. Other remedies include using vinegar, tea, and oatmeal baths.

You can find more sunburn remedies here

lots of GOOD lotion helps- for me it's itchy because the skin is dry and can't stretch. i can usually avoid bad peeling (depending on how bad the burn is obviously) and really nasty feeling skin with lots of lotion [Smile]
