Embarrassing sunburns: Don’t burn your buns!

Health News

(KPRC) Can you get sunburned through a car or airplane window? The answer is yes. In fact, you can even get burned through white T-shirts.

Doctors say these are some of the questions people hesitate to ask, with the topmost embarrassing concerns focusing on private areas. 

“If a sunburn is on a sensitive part of your body, so something that is normally covered by or should be covered by clothing, if you have a severe burn in those areas, professional burn care is recommended. So genitals or breast, for example,” says dermatologist Dr. John Griffin.

Griffin says people trying to tan the delicate spots of their body sometimes land in the hospital because the sensitive areas burn quickly.

Even without burning your bum, doctors say there are other questions people hesitate to ask.
