David Suro said:During the healing time, be sure to keep the wounds out of the sun as much as possible. Rash wipes away the first few layers of skin. The exposed under-layers are much more sensitive to sunburn. Sunburn on rash will lengthen the healing time, increase scarring, and really hurt.
That said, my favorite remedy is time in the ocean. Pick early morning or late afternoon hours to avoid the peak sun. Sal****er does wonders for healing the skin. The initial sting is a little tough, but worth it!

Back in the early 90's I had a fish really nail my finger while feeding them some frozen peas trying to do underwater photo session. I left all that up to Steve Irwin after that.

mylanternrouge said:Rawleigh's antiseptic salve is, quite possibly, the best road rash remedy available. It dries, protects, and pulls out the nasty bits. The stuff smells a bit odd -- I imagine it's the turpentine. It really works.
fatandfast said:Go to a big pharmacy and ask for a product by Johnson and Johnson you might need a script but it's soap mixed with drugs that kill the pain while you are scrubbing it out. No matter what do a couple of shots, wiskey or tequilla and scrub it out. Make sure nobody is home because if it's bad you are going to start crying.
