    2 days ago i burnt myself badly enough to have a chocolate chip sized welt on my chest, thanks to an exploding chocolate chip! blah. it's pretty much in the line of sun, directly. how much pain should i take in covering this up?

    also, to prevent scarring - i have some pure vitamin e oil. anything else i need?

    Yeah, I'd use the 45 spf sunscreen. Burns do not do well, when they get reburned. There is also a product, whose name I cannot remember, which is for scars. It has onion extract as it's main ingredient, but it is sold in regular stores. Mederma I think.
