USE Sunscreen

Recommended Posts

Went to Dermatologist today, referred by GP..... She froze off over 50 spots... said it had became inhumane to continue...prescribed Chemo ointment for my head.... big hat and SPF 50 come back in 3 months and start again.... I thought I was doing a pretty good job... not as good as Ham but ...pretty good.  Be careful, precaution is better than treatment.

Good advice Griz.  I being a bald guy get pretty browned up as much as I'm outside...  I try to remember and do a good job, but I need to do better... Wife got me some ultralight HUK hoodies to try this summer to keep the rays off me.  I've heard they have good UV protection so I hope they work.

       Yes the day we fished at jig Fest together if it had been warm neither of us would of had our heads covered and we would of blinded anyone that looked at our boat :) .  I too am going to be better. Thanks Griz for the Public Service Announcement.

Being bald, I avoided hats due to ridiculous tan lines and “tried” to sunscreen. Now wear a hat and sun buff. Cheap amazon pack along with a freebie sun shirt from st Croix.  Stick sunscreen for nose now.  

I’m not prone to burning but....Hoping to be a better example for my kids... it covers my ears which I am concerned with...and found it to be cooler in the heat of summer.  Son took to it like nothing. 

Keep us posted on the follow ups. Unfortunately it’s likely a future event for some more of us. Too bad we can’t undo past decisions.

I'm now at the point of turning down free ball caps or giving them away.  I'm looking for a decent boonie hat for this summer.

I had six or so spots frozen on my last dermatologist's appointment last month, one of which was on the rim of an ear.  I had a divot taken out of the rim of the other ear a few years back with the MOAS procedure.  That's where the surgeon cuts out what he or she thinks is the worst of it. Then he scrapes the tissue thats left and takes it into the lab for a look to see if any cancer cells are left.  In my case, it took three scraping sessions to get rid of the cancer over the course of three hours.  It does sound worse than it was, but it costs about as much as a new Ultrex...

I've been made fun of for years now for looking like a ninja.  I prefer sun block clothes to sunscreen.

I use sunblock and a buff.  Gotta protect the lips too, had some tissue frozen off my lower lip by the dermatologist.  That was fun.  But it took care of it, next step would've been the dreaded chemo ointment, thankfully it was not needed.

I bought the Seahawk and it is a great boonie
