Summer is just around the corner. The healthcare professionals at Lima Pediatrics want to remind parents of the importance of applying sunscreen to themselves, their children and children in their care.
Sun protection is essential to skin cancer prevention – about 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers and about 86 percent of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV radiation from the sun, no matter your gender or ethnicity.
The healthcare professionals at Lima Pediatrics encourage parents to consult with your pharmacist or personal physician to determine the proper SPF level of sunscreen that you and your children require. With so many sunscreen products on the market, the proper product could ultimately save a life!
