      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Sunburn! How to speed the recovery...

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys

Need so help and advice on this one.

Was out volunteering today for the KTTC Flood Relief Drive that happened today at all 3 HyVee Locations in Rochester. I was under a canopy most of the time and thought I was safe from good ol' mister sun. But looking at my arms tonight you think I boiled a lobster by thrusting my whole arm in the pot. Its not severe so no need to rush to the hospital or anything like that. I am a redhead so I have had my fair share of sunburns growing up.

I am looking info on what products you all have tried and like that will speed the recovery of a sunburn.

Any recommendations??

Thanks for the input,

Redbeard5289

I keep a bottle of aloe vera gel in the fridge. Rub that on and sit back in the A/C. ahhhhhhhh. I also pop a few aspirin before bedtime if it's real bad.

Take a vinegar bath, wrap yourself in a sheet and hit the sack! By morning the sting should be gone and rarely will it peal!

Do the vinegar thing. Show up tomorrow and I bet they won't ask you to volenteer again.

I have always used aloe and cold wash cloth. Drink lots of water to keep yourself hydrated.

Sounds funny but sunscreen works. Something they put in there not sure what but it really helps. Oh yah, and also helps before the burn. Hope it gets better soon, those nasty sunburns are something else!!

My wife sells this Daisy Blue stuff that comes in a spray. Daisy Blue is a line of all natural beauty products. Trust me, I am not just putting out free advertising. I was very skeptical of her selling this stuff as I thought it was a pyramid scheme but the more products I try (not very willingly mind you) the more I like it. The after sun spray is awesome. It has aloe vera in it along with peppermint to help cool your skin. I spent 14 hours out fishing two weekends ago without using any sunscreen. I should have been in much pain and peeling like crazy. I really felt no pain using this stuff and I did not peel. Check it out. You might be surprised.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the helpful suggestions. I spent an hour tearing the bathroom apart looking for some Aloe Vera Gel last night only to have my wife tell me she threw it out cause the bottle was dusty from not being used. She figured I didn't used it anymore and got a little too excited with the spring cleaning...

Ended up using some moisturizing lotion that the wife had on hand. Not the greatest thing I ever used plus the cranberry/lotus blossom scent was a bit nauseating. They should really have some manly scents available.

Will try and find something better during my lunch hour today.

Thanks again for all the great suggestions...

Air,

Now you got me curious. How much vinegar do you add to the bath water. The aloe vera stuff was a no brainer. I had a choice of going with the green jelly stuff but chose the blue jelly stuff because it had a painkiller built in to relieve the sting of sunburn, pretty cool!

I knew I smelled something fruity wink.. I hope you don't catch heck at work smelling like that, I would ..I agree though, something with a little more manly smell would be awsome. I won't touch anything my wife has in the cupboard. I would use bug spray first.

I spent 8 days in the burn unit (long story but funny now) when they sent me home the gave me a cream that was called "Silvedine" (bad speller?) any way that stuff is great. My daughter rested her arm in a hot weber when she was 4. we put some on asap and she never even blistered. you can only get it through a doc. but if I ever burn sun or other wise bad I am going to beg for more!

Aloe Vera and drink a lot of water. Take a aspirin or 2 for pain if needed. If you are lucky enough to have some left over Silvadine that stuff is awesome.

Most important is to get out of the sun and drink a lot of water.

Drink plenty of water, aloe vera, and ibuprofen not aspirin because it reduces swelling and not just numb the pain.

Somebody told me that to help stop the burning process once out of the sun, you need to take a cold shower. Your skin will continue to burn for a while until the cold water is applied. I think they make aloe with a mild pain killer in them now. My grandma used to put noxema on me back when I was a kid when I got sunburned. Might be worth a try if there is some around.

well if you want the pain to go away you might want to endure pain for another 20 minutes; just rub vinegar on it, it will be burn like absolute crazy, but that will be the end of your sunburn problems.

My sister-in-law works at Shopko and gave me some Blue Aloe Vera gel that contained Lidocaine to put on my sunburn. It works pretty good. Must be working since I don't feel the sunburn generating any warmth anymore.

I'll have to remember the vinegar thing for next time. Sounds like a good treatment. Rochesterfest is coming up next week so I am sure I will be outside for that.

Thanks to all for the suggestions. Will put all into effect this summer, guaranteed!

Another vote for straight Alo. I buy the pure stuff at health food store that is inteneded to be ingested. I keep in fridge. Lasts years. It helps a lot but time is really the cure. The itchy stage of a bad sunburn is almost as bad as the burn!!!

    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
    • Well the switch closes at 115 degrees F so you will have to place it somewhere that It reaches that temp when you want it to turn on. I would say inside on the sheet metal top vent would do the trick if you wanted it hidden If not I guess just stick it on the outside of the vent hole. Or I am guessing it will close if you just stick it on the side of the heater just have the flat part of the switch flush with it I know my heater gets pretty hot pretty much anywhere on the metal basically I would take a bbq thermometer and find a place that hits 115 when you would want the fan to kick on.    As for the wire go to the hardware store and get some high temp like this its rated to 392 F https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh   If you need something higher rated https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KCPL3GC/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B01KCPL3GC&pd_rd_wg=NEE9O&pd_rd_r=NHQPZ29KWH6QT57M7M41&pd_rd_w=aiXqh That's rated for 482 F    
    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
