    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    When I get in my car I put sunscreen on my hands and arms. Driving in the hot summer sun, even with the windows up, increases sun damage on your hands, too.

    The BEST tip I ever got from a dermotologist, was to put sunscreen on my hands, to prevent age spots. Eversince I have been doing that my hands have not gotten those age spots.

    AND treat your neck and chest as you do your face.

    Hi rxandmore,

    Please post your question about blue veins on the hands as a discussion starter. Mouse over the orange "Post Now" button and click on the discussion link if you want the doctors to more easily "see" your post as this thread is a tip rather than a discussion thread. Thanks.

    - Annie
