 That develops from pigment cells. The most dangerous type of skin cancer. The risk of melanoma is also doubled if the person in my entire life (at any age) received from five sunburns.

In fact, a sunburn - it burns caused by ultraviolet radiation (UV). The main symptom - is redness, tenderness to touch the burnt areas. Usually the symptoms of sunburn appear after thirty minutes.

Ultraviolet radiation is divided into several types, differing from each other along the length of the light wave. Through the dense layers of the atmosphere reach us only ultraviolet rays A and B. Irradiation in tanning - similar to the sun's rays, and also happens to UV-A and UV-B rays.

Dangerous for human skin appearance UV is an ultraviolet-B (UV-B). Excessive exposure to UV-B causes the risk of human cancer.

However, with UV-B, UV-A (UV-A) is not harmless. UV rays cause sunburn and skin photoaging (premature wrinkles).

The normal dose of ultraviolet light brings only benefits. A shortfall of ultraviolet radiation has a negative impact on the human body.

As soon as the UV dose higher than normal, the person may cause health problems. The most common of them - is getting a painful sunburn.

Serious sunburn complicated by severe burning of skin, blisters, a strong dehydration, disruption of water and electrolyte imbalance and possible infection.
