I (heart) Aloe Gel with Lidocaine

The Tater Tot and I spent a few hours in the sun today.  I didn't apply any sunblock as I didn't expect to be outside for hours so I'm afraid that we both got a little too much sun.  My son has the slightest pink color on his shoulders and I have the slightest pink color on my arms.  I don't think that it is bothering him, but I want him to be comfortable.  I slathered his shoulders with an aloe gel that contains lidocaine so it produces a cooling and numbing sensation to his skin.  I've used it the few times that I've sunburned before and it does significantly help ease any pain.  Of course, it's easiest to avoid sunburn in the first place. . .
