Abstract

The medical records of fifteen patients presenting to the emergency department of a university hospital for sunburn were reviewed. Patients with sunburn had a mean age of 27 years and injury was most likely to occur in July. Six patients had blisters secondary to the ultraviolet injury. Treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs was used for nine of fifteen patients. Although eight instances of patient education about the primary prevention of future sunburn were documented in the medical records, only one patient record had documentation of her being warned about her increased risk for skin cancer.
