We must cover now or else heat stroke will be the consequence.

Growing up & living in Australia, I am used to having the hot sun beating down on me...I find it very uncomfortable to wear anything with sleeves in the summer time - I am always wearing singlets & tank tops...for me, it just gets way too hot for even a t-shirt.

well, happily, one of the few things that DOESN'T bother me is sunshine... Oh, I burn with the best of them know that if I'm in the sun for more than a few minutes I burn, but if I'm walking, those few minutes won't really bother me - well, the heat bothers me, but its that heat/humidity, not the sun Psoriasis isn't one of my problems, got a friend with it, poor thing

to avoid the sun heat, i used to cover all my body with cotton shirt. and if i think that i will walk along under the sun heat, i will use umbrella. it helps me much to reduce the bad effect of sun heat. but it is the sweat still we can't avoid to

I try to wear light cotton when I know I am going to be out for awhile in the sun. I know what you mean by upsetting your psoriasis. I have had some weird rash for over a year now and the doctor told me yesterday that it is something that starts with the letter D which I can't recall right now.

Hi, jugsjugs. I may do this only when I am walking during the evening. The mosquitoes are out so bad then. They will bite up my arm poorly. I may take a jacket then. And if I work in the yard, it is always good to wear a think long sleeve too. This is only when it is cool and not so hot outside.

It is very, very difficult for me to keep myself covered up when the sun is out. I like to wear short or sleeveless shirts during the summer time and I will typically end up with one pretty bad sunburn during the duration of the summer but after that I will tan up. I'm lucky that I don't have sensitive skin because I don't know how I would be able to deal with having to keep all of my skin covered up the majority of the time.

I'm doing surveying, Surveying road elevations and stuff. It requires me to go out and ignore the sun. My skin gets dark easily and all my effort to keep my complexion lighter turns to dust so now I survey with an attitude "who cares about the sun anymore" Even if I want to I can't really cover myself with something because I live in a tropical country, just imagine the heat or worst I may end up in a hospital because of heat stroke

I don't go out in the sun that often and when I do I am usually covered up. I am light skinned so I burn easily and I know I should use sunscreen but I don't. I am confused between knowing that too much sun is bad for you but then again you can get vitamin D from the sun. I never know how much is too much. I would appreciate knowing if anyone can help.

Too bad if you happen to have a condition that will worsen if you expose yourself too much in the sun then i suggest you stay away from direct sunlight at least prolonged exposure unless you want more problems. We are experiencing the same thing in our country lately good thing the rainy season is bout to come, but weeks ago its too hot that i have to take my tshirt off most of the times. The scorching heat is like flames all over around you . Thats why i just cant help it but to take a shower every now and then too. Im hoping it will cool down a bit in your place pretty soon too .

I hardly ever go out in the sun anymore because here in Texas is gets so hot I get sick when it is so hot!!! I wish I could like I used to I used to go out in the sun just in my bathing suit and stay at the pool all day long but the first time I did it I regreted it because I was red as a beet!! L.O.L.But now It just seems to get hotter and hotter here every summer so I try to stay indoors.This heat here makes me so sick.

I am blessed with normal skin so I don't cover up when I go outside. And all this stuff about using sunscreen is silly as far as I'm concerned. Did you know that there is an epidemic lack of Vitamin D because of the use of sunscreen and cover clothing? When I go outside I don't seek out the sun but I do let it shine on me when it will.

I wear some thing comfortable the day. So, I do not have to change. But, mostly I just wear a shirt and some shorts at night. But, if it cold I tend to wear something that warms me.

I have avoided the sun for several years because of all the scares connected with it, but now I will take sun onto my body for short periods of time as it is the best source of vitamin D that most of us are now short of. They have even discovered that small amounts of sun is actually helping with cancer cures for those who have it. Doctor Mercola, has written quite a lot about sun exposure and using caution. You may be interested to read some. Here is on article here - http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2003/12/10/cancer-sun.aspx _Derek
