Here are some tips from the American Academy of Dermatology that we at Skin By Char want to share with you.


1.  Wear protective clothing, such as long sleeved shirt, pants, a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses, when possible.


2.  Seek shade when appropriate, and remember that the sun’s rays are strongest between 10 am and 4 pm.


3.  Use extra caution near water, snow, sand and concrete because they reflect the damaging rays of the sun, which can increase                             your chance of sunburn. 


4.  Protect children from sun exposure by applying sun protection.  Kids younger than six months old should be kept out of the sun. Get vitamin D safely through a healthy diet that includes supplements.  Don’t seek it from the sun.


5.  Avoid tanning beds.  UV light from both the sun and tanning beds causes skin cancer wrinkling.  If you want to l look like you have been in the sun, consider applying a sunless self-tanning product, but continue to use sun protection with it. 


6.  Check your birthday suit on your birthday. If you notice anything changing, growing or bleeding, see a dermatologist.  Skin Cancer is very treatable when caught early. 

How much sun protection should I apply on my face everyday?

Follow the two finger rule:  Put a line of sun protection 1/8 inch wide down the lengths of your index and middle fingers.  Unlike recommending a standard measure, such as a teaspoon, for each person, using a person’s own finger to measure will deliver the right amount of sun protection for your entire face, ears, neck, throat and upper chest. 

Always remember climate, altitude, time of year, medication, disease, cloud cover and even surfaces-water, sand, snow, cement can increase the effects of UV hitting the skin. If a person burns in their backyard in July in 15 minutes, they would be able to stay out in the same backyard in Aug. for three and a half hours with an SPF 15.  But if that same person goes to a high-altitude location, such as Aspen, Colorado, in June on a cloudy day and has been taking  diuretics for several days, that SPF is going to change and they are going to burn faster.  In face, the SPF could be cut in half, allowing the person to stay in the sun for less than two hours.  The Same is true if you moved from a northern climate, such as New Jersery, to one closer to the equator, such as Mexico. 

The Message here:  SPF isn’t specific to the person:  its specific to the environment and conditions of exposure.  Be sure to take all these points into consideration when choosing your sun protection.

Other Benign Skin Growths

What are other benign skin growths?

As a person grows older and is exposed to sunlight, the skin changes. Most people have some skin marks, such as freckles and moles, which may multiply or darken over time.

What are the different types of skin growths?

Skin Growth

Characteristics

Treatment

Dermatofibromas - Small, firm, red or brown bumps caused by an accumulation of fibroblasts (soft tissue cells under the skin). They often occur on the legs and may itch.  Dermatofibromas can be surgically removed if they become painful or itchy.

Dermoid cyst- A benign tumor which is made up of hairs, sweat glands, and sebaceous glands. Some internal dermoid tumors may even contain cartilage, bone fragments, and teeth.   Dermoid cysts may be removed surgically for cosmetic reasons.

Freckles - Darkened, flat spots that typically appear only on sun-exposed areas of the skin. Freckles are common in people with blond or red hair.  No treatment is necessary for freckles.

Keloids - Smooth, firm, raised, fibrous growths on the skin that form in wound sites. Keloids are more common in African-Americans.

Keloids respond poorly to most treatment approaches. Injections of corticosteroid drugs may help to flatten the keloids. Other treatment approaches may include surgery or silicone patches to further flatten the keloids.

Keratoacanthomas - Round, flesh-colored growths that have a crater that contains a pasty material. These growths tend to appear on the face, forearm, or back of the hand. They usually disappear after a couple of months, but may leave scars.  Treatment usually includes a skin biopsy to rule out skin cancer. Other treatment may include surgical removal and/or injections of corticosteroids or fluorouracil. 

Lipomas - Round or oval lumps under the skin caused by fatty deposits. Lipomas are more common in women and tend to appear on the forearms, torso, and back of the neck.  Lipomas are generally harmless, but if the lipoma changes shape, your physician may perform a biopsy. Treatment may include removal by surgery.

Moles (nevi) - Small skin marks caused by pigment-producing cells in the skin. Moles can be flat or raised, smooth or rough, and some contain hair. Most moles are dark brown or black, but some are skin-colored or yellowish. Moles can change over time and often respond to hormonal changes.  Most moles are benign and no treatment is necessary. Some benign moles may develop into skin cancer (melanoma).

Atypical Moles - Larger than normal moles (more than a half inch across), atypical moles are not always round. Atypical moles can be tan to dark brown, on a pink background. These types of moles may occur anywhere on the body.  Treatment may include removal of any atypical mole that changes in color, shape and/or diameter. In addition, people with atypical moles should avoid sun exposure, since sunlight may accelerate changes in atypical moles. Persons with atypical moles should consult a physician with any changes that may indicate skin cancer.

Pyogenic Granulomas - Red, brown, or bluish-black, raised marks caused by excessive growth of capillaries (small blood vessels) and swelling. Pyogenic granulomas usually form after an injury to the skin.  Some pyogenic granulomas disappear without treatment. Sometimes, a biopsy is necessary to rule out cancer. Treatment may include surgical removal.

Seborrheic Keratoses -  Flesh-colored, brown, or black wart-like spots. More common in middle-aged and older people, seborrheic keratoses may be round or oval and look like they are "stuck" on the skin.  Usually, no treatment is necessary. If the spots are irritated, or the patient wants them removed for cosmetic reasons, treatment may include freezing the area with liquid nitrogen or surgery.

Skin Tags - Soft, small, flesh-colored skin flaps on the neck, armpits, or groin.  If the skin tags are irritated, or the patient wants them removed for cosmetic reasons, treatment may include freezing the tags with liquid nitrogen or surgery.

Distinguishing benign moles from melanoma:

According to recent research, certain moles are at higher risk for changing into cancerous growths, including malignant melanoma, a form of skin cancer. Moles that are present at birth and atypical moles have a greater chance of becoming malignant. Recognizing changes in your moles, by following this ABCD Chart, is crucial in detecting malignant melanoma, and other cancerous skin growths at its earliest stage of development. The warning signs are:


The ABCDEs of melanoma skin cancer are:

  1. Asymmetry. One half doesn't match the appearance of the other half.

  2. Border irregularity. The edges are ragged, notched, or blurred.

  3. Color. The color (pigmentation) is not uniform. Shades of tan, brown, and black are present. Dashes of red, white, and blue add to a mottled appearance.

  4. Diameter. The size of the mole is greater than 1/4 inch (6 mm), about the size of a pencil eraser. Any growth of a mole should be evaluated.

  5. Evolution (not shown in the picture). There is a change in the size, shape, symptoms (such as itching or tenderness), surface (especially bleeding), or color of a mole.

  6. Apply SPF everyday!
