You would do the same thing for a sunburn on a scar as for a sunburn on unscarred skin. There is no reason to do anything differently. All sunburns eventually itch, not just ones on scars.

Kara, all sun burns are potentially dangerous. You should cover up or wear sunscreen.

I asked about the same thing several weeks ago. My back was pretty much burnt to a crisp. : ) And it ended up being completely fine. It'll itch a lot just like it would on normal skin, so use lots of Aloe Vera if you have some. Hope you're having a good time at camp.

Remember to reapply suntan lotion often especially after swimming.
