Do I need Sunscreen in the Snow?

Its snowing outside … you will need a hat … and Sunscreen!

Remember, it only takes one blistering sunburn to nearly double your chances of developing skin cancer according to the AAD. 

Kathryn Frew, MD encourages all her patients to regularly examine their skin for signs of skin cancer and see a board-certified dermatologist if they notice any unusual spots on their skin, including anything changing, itching or bleeding.

Those with an increased risk of melanoma or a history of skin cancer or history of atypical (dysplastic) moles should consult a dermatologist to determine how often they should receive a comprehensive skin cancer screening. 

Modern Dermatology Pllc offers virtual visits for rashes, acne/rosacea, concerning spots and prescription renewals. Given the complexity and time needed for a comprehensive skin cancer screening with your MD we do recommend that you visit the practice in person for your annual skin check.
