Beach vacation makes liver spots bloom

Liver spots after beach vacation

At the Colorado School of Public Health, about 700 children were screened for moles before and after their beach vacation, and their parents were interviewed about the beach vacation. In children under the age of six, the number of moles increased by five percent as a result of the holiday. Regular exposure to the sun at home did not seem to affect the number of moles.

Liver spots: prevent them!

Liver spots are a risk factor for black skin cancer (malignant melanoma). So make sure you have adequate protection when you go on holiday with your children: Small children should only go out in the sun with a hat and clothing that covers their arms and legs. Light, special sun protection clothing is best. Babies are only allowed to stay in the shade – and the hot midday sun is taboo for all children anyway.
