The first, and best, line of defense against harmful ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure is covering up. Stay in the shade whenever possible, and limit sun exposure during the peak intensity hours - between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The sun's damaging UV rays can bounce back from sand, water, snow or concrete; so be particularly careful of these areas.
If your child gets sunburn that results in blistering, pain or fever, contact your pediatrician.
