Watch Out for Those UV Rays!

Monday, July 30, 2018
At the beach last week, I severely burned a section of my upper thigh that I missed with the sunscreen.  Here we are, a week later, and the section is still painful to the touch and a dark red.  For days, the muscle beneath it was also inflamed.  I can't imagine how terrible it would have been had I forgotten sunscreen altogether.  I am very pale, and have avoided tanning beds most of my life, as well as the beating sun.  Having said that, I had many, many severe sunburns as a child and in my early adulthood.  One of my sisters has had several pre-cancerous spots removed from her chest.  This burn, though only a patch, is quite painful, and was a bit of a wake-up call as I've been lax with sun-screen in recent years.  I gotta take care of this body--it's the only one I've got!
