Q. I am African American and I would like to know is there something to prevent us from getting darker and burning. When I tan I burn.
I'm also a safety officer for my job and many of the employees are African American too and work outside.
Many of us think we can't get skin cancer and I know that is not true. Please give me some helpful information that I can use as well as pass on.
Also wearing protective clothing such as wide brim hats, long sleeves, sunglasses, etc.
Some one told me they might be a ring worm but I have tried many ring worm medicines and nothing is working. Please help.
However, you really need to see a dermatologist to make an accurate diagnosis and give you the correct treatment.
