Just One Blistering Sunburn = A Double Risk of Developing Skin Cancer

Even one blistering sunburn doubles your risk for having skin cancer. But really, no tan is a safe tan. Even a little bit of bronzing indicates damage to the DNA."

I didn't have a blistering sunburn but I did have a sunburn which is odd for me I have olive skin. Never had a burn before. Recently I went to Florida to visit w/ my sister & we were @ the pool. After I came home a month later I noticed red spots on my arms & legs. Then my skin peeled. I thought this was so odd. Should I be concerned? Should I see my doctor? I am kind of worried please let me know. Thank you. Scared in TN
Mohiba K Tareen, MD replied to stormy328's response:
Dear Stormy,

I would try a good moisturizer such as Cerave Cream or Cetaphil Restoraderm cream for a good 2 weeks. If in 6 weeks after your trip the skin lesions do not resolve, it would be food to see a doctor as they could indicate sun damage or even precancerous lesions.

Please keep us posted.

Best of luck
