  • I'm not sure, but I'd definitely get it checked out by a doctor. Sun damage should always be looked at. It may be nothing, but you never know. Best of luck!

  • Sun burns put you at a substantially greater risk for skin cancer. There are 4 things to look at when determining whether you need to have a doctor check out the mark A- Asymetry: Most moles are round and not irregular in shape so if the mark looks irregular it should be checked out. B- Border: The Border should be defined C- Color: Most moles are uniform in color and a variance in color may be cause for concern D- Diameter: if you notice a mole become larger and changes in size, this is concerning.

  • Get it checked out. Anytime you get sunburned, use Shea Butter on it. It helps the skin heal itself & minimizes peeling.
