Sun Screen for Highly Allergic Child

hi moms! i have a 20 month old who is allergic to EVERYTHING from foods to meds and everything in between. this is a new thing, this time last year he had no health issues and i could change detergents, buy cheap wipes, and he never had a reaction. but for whatever reason all his issues are popping up now. my question is, what sun screen can i try for children with sensitive skin? i tried aveeno baby and water babies and both caused a rash. Any suggestions?

Itching After a Sunburn

I wanted to see if anyone had some advice on why I itch after a sunburn and what to do about it. More than a week ago I got a minor sunburn on my legs while at the beach, the pain from the sunburn was gone within a day and it's gone completly now but the areas that were burned itch like crazy. I thought that it had just dried my skin out and I've been putting lotion on my legs. We'll my legs are nice and soft and still itch. Any ideas?
