Burnt to a Crisp
(Salt Lake City, UT, USA)
While visiting a local water park, I applied sunscreen early in the day.
Over the course of the day, I forgot to reapply the sunscreen. With being in the water, all of my sun block washed away.
When sitting in the hot tub, I noticed my skin felt like it was on fire. After going home, a sunburn
continued to develop for several hours.
Eventually, blisters filled with fluid appeared all over, making any activity very difficult and painful.
When the blisters started to pop, I had to go to the doctor for special ointment to prevent infection.
This was an extremely painful experience.
If I had better coverage both from sunscreen and clothing, I could have prevented this serious burn.
Even now I have severe freckling from the burn and scars where the blisters popped.
There is also probably other more serious damage that will make me more susceptible to skin cancer
