The other day when Tom and I met we got into a discussion of the sun's damage to our bodies since we work outside all the time. We noted that both of us have had to resort to long sleeve shirts and wide brimmed hats to curtail damage (and possible skin cancer) especially to our arms, ears and noses. In the past I've used tons of sunscreen to no avail and it seemed that as I get older the sunscreen works less. I've resorted to long sleeved Under Armor loose fit heat shirts that are very light weight yet protect the skin. They also dry out very quickly and don't "sogged" me down like cotton shirts do. I recently had skin lesions on my arms removed for biopsies but they were found to be non-cancerous. I then underwent treatment by a dermatologist that is a cream that kills the bad cells and sluffs off the old skin. New skin comes up and most of the bad spots are removed. I'll have to undergo treatment a second time this fall to make sure all the bad cells were killed. I've included some pictures of how the treatment looks. It progresses from turning the skin red, to pussing up the bad areas, to scabbing up and then finally falling off with new skin underneath. The scabbing part is the worse because I felt like taking a grinding wheel to my arms to get the scabs off quicker. Anyone else experience this and/or what do you do to protect yourself from the sun?
