It is Summer - These things will make your sunburn worse!

It's the middle of Summer. Be sure to be careful or you'll burn badly. There are things that can make you more susceptible to a worse sunburn. Check out this CBS News article, "Beware Of Sunburn Boosters - Certain Drugs And Skin Care Products Can Increase Your Sensitivity To The Sun."

Bottomline, you need to pay attention to these items that can make a sunburn worse:

  1. Diuretics - 'water pills' that help lower your blood pressure
  2. Antibiotics - certain kinds like tetracycline, and others
  3. Skin Care Products - certain products used to make your wrinkles go away
  4. Heart Medications - amiodarone for example
  5. Diabetes Medications - glipizide for example
  6. NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain drugs) - ibuprofen for example
  7. Balsam of Peru - can be found in some perfumed products
