Contact Dermatitis During a Pandemic
I have just returned from lecturing on contact dermatitis at the Noah Worcester Dermatological Society meeting. This post is based on topics covered in my lecture.
We would suggest in general to pick the higher SPF products as supported by this recent publication. A recent study by Williams et al., compared Sun protection factor (SPF) 100 and 50 sunscreens. The investigators found that the subjects had more sunburns (56%) vs (7%) on the sites treated with the lower SPF sunscreens. (Williams JD et al. J Am Acad Dermatol 2019).
