Sun Protection

Posted by on Jun 21, 2009 in Home & Family | 1 comment

We all want to have fun in the summer but staying healthy is especially important when you’re out in the sun.

Sunburn results when the amount of exposure to the sun or other ultraviolet light source exceeds the ability of the body’s protective pigment, melanin, to protect the skin. Sunburn in a very light-skinned person may occur in less than 15 minutes of midday sun exposure, while a dark-skinned person may tolerate the same exposure for hours.

Sunburn is better prevented than treated. Effective sunscreens are available in a wide variety of strengths. Most doctors recommend a sunscreen SPF level of 30 or greater.

Sunscreen should be generously applied. If out in the sun for a prolonged period of time during the day, wearing a hat and other protective clothing is recommended. Light clothing reflects the sun most effectively.

If you do get a sunburn:
* Try taking a cool shower or bath or placing wet, cold wash rags on the burn.
* Avoid products that contain benzocaine, lidocaine, or petroleum (like Vaseline).
* If blisters are present, dry bandages may help prevent infection.
* If your skin is not blistering, moisturizing cream may be applied to relieve discomfort.
* Over the counter medications, like ibuprofen, may help to relieve pain from sunburn. (Aspirin should be avoided in children who are running a fever.)

Call your doctor if you have a fever with the sunburn or if fluid-filled blisters, dizziness, or vision problems occur with it.

Keep in mind….
* Children and babies are more sensitive to the sun and are more likely than others to get a sunburn.
* Your risk of a burn increases when you’re near things that reflect the sun, including snow, water or sand.
* The harmful rays of the sun are strongest and most dangerous between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
* Certain medications, including antibiotics, can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
