HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Ruth Latham wants her patients to avoid sunburn.
Frequent sunburns can lead to skin cancer, wrinkles, premature aging and cataracts.
To prevent sunburn, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, wear sunscreen and sun protective clothing and accessories.
If you do get sunburn, use cool compresses and aloe-based lotions. If it is real bad, see your doctor.
