How to Enjoy Your Summer AND Avoid the ER at The Same Time
June 17, 2013
How to Enjoy Your Summer AND Avoid the ER at The Same Time By Tina Fitzgerald BSN RN CDE Summer will soon be here. School is out and kids are everywhere! Now is the time to plan how to enjoy your summer without becoming an Emergency Room statistic. Let’s start with the sun: Sunburn: Avoid sun exposure between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM without sunscreen. This is when the angle of the sun will be at it’s best angle to fry you. Wear a shirt during the “danger times”. Find a shady spot. Use sunscreen of at least 15. The factor should be higher for children and those with sensitive skin. Be sure to reapply after swimming or sweating. If you use an insect repellant the effectiveness of the sunscreen is decreased by one third. Use a higher SPF sunscreen if you are using insect repellant also. A SPF greater than 50 is no more effective than a 50. So if you are going for the max get a SPF of 50.
