I hate everyone who doesn't burn like this when they fall asleep on the beach. Curse you all!

Ive always wondered why that spot behind your knee burns the worst...does it get the least sun usually making it more prone to burns when exposed...or does it have something to do with it having to be more flexible than other skin on your body?

Either way, it sure hurts the worse. That, and sunburned eyebrows. It's really bizarro when your eyebrows start peeling.

Eeek. I suppose I won't casually touch you.

What in heaven's name are you putting on it? There was some stuff that I used in Hawaii that was similar to Solarcaine that was from Japan and worked wonders.

I think it has something to do with how thin/delicate the skin is, but that's just a guess.

Hospital strength Dermoplast. It really doesn't do anything.

Doctors are now starting to question the thought to "always cover up in the sun" that you hear all the time. The lack of Vitamin D may outweigh the risk from skin cancer. They advise moderate sun exposure. Burning is still a no-no, though.
In an April speech to the American Association for Cancer Research, he [Harvard Medical School Professor Edward Giovannucci] acknowledged the dangers of the sun-related skin cancer melanoma, which was diagnosed in 55,000 Americans last year, killing 7,900. But, he argued, too little sun, and therefore too little vitamin D, may cause 70 other cancer deaths per 100,000 people each year.
