Caption: Sunburn. View of reddened and inflamed skin around the nape of the neck and shoulders due to over- exposure to sunlight. The ultraviolet rays in sunlight may destroy cells in the outer layer of the skin and damage the blood vessels beneath. Sunburn is most common in fair skinned people, whose skin only contains small amounts of the protective pigment melanin. The exposed skin turns red and tender and may blister. Skin should be protected with a high protection factor sunscreen. Burnt skin can be soothed with calamine lotion; severely burnt skin may need corticosteriod (anti-inflammatory) cream.
