I try to avoid being in direct sun separate from sunscreen because of our sensitive skin.
- If I get anything more than the most mild of sunburns, I get something known colloquially as “devil’s itch.” It’s terrifyingly painful nerve spasms that suppose appreciate you’re always getting prodded with a red overheated metal needle.
Every single time I’m in direct sun for longer than 45 minutes with no sun screen & our back is exposed, I will usually get an terrible case of devil’s itch. The only thing I can do is attempt to deal with the pain with a little bit of aloe vera gel & copious amounts of ibuprofen & acetaminophen. The last time I was stricken with a nasty sunburn, the only thing that made it suppose considerably better was a steady, freezing stream of air coming from our a/c vent. I laid down on our stomach underneath the ceiling vent & felt the cool stream of air pouring over our sunburn. The freezing a/c didn’t provide me total relief from our sunburn, but it actually helped. I have to be more careful about not getting exposed to the sun appreciate this, otherwise I’m going to end up with spots of skin cancer someday that could threaten our livelihood. I already suppose several people in our house complex who have had skin cancer spots removed in the last few decades. It’s smarter to just use sunscreen, that way I’m not abusing our a/c just to suppose better either. Skin cancer is a serious issue that cannot be brushed off, especially if you’re someone who is at higher risk based on how much direct exposure you get to intense sunlight.
