Sunburn can cause cancer Every year, many deaths are encountered due to irregular sunbathing. Although sunburn symptoms do not manifest themselves in the short term, they can cause sun spots, cataracts, skin aging, skin cancers and wrinkles in the long term. According to experts, sunburn occurs when the 'melalin' substance, which gives color to the body and protects the skin against light, loses this protective feature over time when it is exposed to too much sun or is affected by ultraviolet light source. Sun burns can reach scary sizes for sensitive skin. They can be affected by the sun much more easily, and the healing process of burns takes longer than brunette skin. People with very sensitive skin can stay in the afternoon sun for 15 minutes, while dark skinned people can sunbathe for minutes. However, protection is a must for both skin types. Experts point out that although sunburn symptoms do not show up in the short term, sun spots, cataracts, skin aging, skin cancers and wrinkles may occur in the long term. "However, prolonged uncontrolled sunbathing can even damage blood vessels," the experts warn that the symptoms of sunburn start with redness, and later blisters and skin peels occur. Experts advise those who are exposed to the sun very much because of their job: "Get regular skin care. Check your birthmarks frequently. Color and size changes in your birth marks may be a sign of a dangerous situation. Apply creams. Drink plenty of fluids. Wear sunscreen and glasses with ultraviolet filter. " Specialists who noted that it may be beneficial to take a cold shower against sunburn and apply a cold compress, "If your skin has collected water, do not leave an open wound in your body, cover it with the help of a sterile bandage. Do not use drugs containing Benzocaine unless you recommend a physician. If there is a high fever and water-filled blisters have formed, consult a physician. "
