Several years ago, before we knew about the ozone layer and the dangers of sun to the skin, I was sunbathing and I thought baby oil would help me tan. Man, was I wrong! I got burnt to a crisp. The skin on my stomach was so raw I couldn't touch it. I remember sitting at my desk at work crying because the pain was so bad. I actually had a photo take at the time (no I'm not showing it on here!). I don't want skin cancer so I stay out of the sun when I can, and when I can't I ALWAYS use sunscreen often.

Ohhh im so sorry to hear that...we should avoid exposed to sunlight.As what ue said our ozone layer is getting thinner and for us people it would be very dangerous to our skin health.So better to avoid exposure to sun.Thank you so much for sharing us your thoughts.But what happen then? what treatment you used to healed that burn?Cos im my case before i dont use any treatment.I just always put some ice on the part which burn.Do you use any medicines?

Like I said, this was BEFORE we knew about the ozone. I would have to say it was about 20 years ago - actually more. I don't remember what I did to treat it back then. Today I would use a burn treatment I get from Watkins. I use it on any burn I get from the stove and the pain goes away quickly never to return again.
