There’s a very good reason why Florida is called “The Sunshine State”. Temperatures in the South Florida area can get very steamy which makes the climate ideal for avid sunbathers. A good portion of these sunbathers don’t take the necessary precautions to protect their skin from the harmful effects of soaking up too much of this sultry sunshine, however.
Did you know that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the country? Melanoma, a type of skin cancer is a common occurrence in young adults between the ages of 25 to 29 and the second most common among teenagers. This is why it’s so important to detect the warning signs of skin cancer as early as possible.
If you have rough reddish skin or bumps, these signs can potentially be a form of skin cancer, something that a Miami dermatologist can ultimately help you determine and treat before it gets worse. Consider staying away from tanning beds and when you’re out and about, use the proper protection such as sunscreen and hats. Not only will you prevent the development of skin cancer, your appearance will maintain a more youthful look.
