The sun – from a dermatologist’s point of view
Who doesn’t like the sun? The sun is a source of light, warmth and well-being that makes us feel happy. But be careful. Ultraviolet rays are also the main cause of photoaging and skin cancer.
Hand eczema is an inflammatory condition of the skin which may be caused by:
• excessive contact with e.g. water and detergents (irritant contact eczema)
• allergy (allergic contact eczema)
• genetics (atopic eczema)
Sun protection campaign
In 2017, I participated in the sun protection campaign “Disfruta del Sol sin dejarte la piel” led by Magdalena de Troya, head of the dermatology department at Hospital Costa del Sol.
