We all need some sun exposure. Sunlight and ultraviolet light photoisomerize provitamin D to vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in the skin, which helps in absorb calcium for stronger, healthier bones. But it doesn't take much time in the sun for most people to get the vitamin D they need, and unprotected exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune system suppression, and even cancer. Even people in their twenties can develop skin cancer.
Most kids rack up between 50% and 80% of their lifetime under sun exposure, so it's important that parents teach their children how to enjoy fun in the sun safely.
Facts About Sun Exposure:
UVA rays cause skin aging and wrinkling and contribute to skin cancer, such as melanoma.
UVB rays are also dangerous, causing sunburns, cataracts (clouding of the eye lens), and immune system damage. They also contribute to skin cancer. Melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, is thought to be associated with severe UVB sunburns that occur before the age of 20 years.
Sunburn can happen within 15 minutes of being in the sun, but the redness and discomfort may not be noticed for a few hours. Repeated sunburns can lead to skin cancer.
Increased susceptibility can be expected in individuals with:
Signs and Symptoms:
Mild: Skin redness, warmth, pain and itchiness.
Severe: Skin redness and blistering, pain, tingling, swilling, headache, nausea, fever and chills and dizziness.
