Sunburn, prickly heat, and insect bites top the list of skin problems during summer. While these may be prevented, getting them is sometimes inevitable, simply because we love to stay outdoors during this season.
Prolonged exposure to the sun, when the sun's rays are at their strongest, results in sunburn.
Prickly heat are tiny blisters caused by the obstruction of the sweat gland vesicles, while insect bites are qualified as single lesions usually with a tiny puncta or dot in the center. The usual suspects include mosquitoes, ants, and cockroaches; and when on the beach, sand fleas.
