Sunbathing and Mom&Baby Skin Protection from Linea MammaBaby

Posted on June 10 2021

Linea MammaBaby®, a brand by Olcelli Farmaceutici that has been standing alongside families with its baby care and hygiene products since 2012, and Dr. Daniela Sabbioni, pediatrician and allergist of Milan’s pediatric polycenter, have provided practical hints to follow in order to make keep safe from the sun and enjoy your summer by the sea.

SUNBATHING AND SKIN PROTECTION Sun is a precious ally of the skin and its beneficial effects are numerous, such as the antirachitic action that stimulates vitamin D production – fundamental for its antidepressant effects or the improvement of some dermatoses (atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, vitiligo). However, sun exposition must be controlled and kept under protected condition, at any age but especially for younger children.

“The amount of melanin produced in early phases of life is minimal and then gradually progresses with the growth. Epidemiological studies have shown that intense exposure to sun in young age (under 15 years old) has harmful effects on skin, leading to increased probability of skin cancer in adulthood” explains Dr. Sabbioni “Both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) have the ability, in different ways, to induce skin cancer: therefore it is necessary to use sunscreens that are protective against the full spectrum of ultraviolet. The protection factor must always be elevate, in addiction suncream must to resist to water, sweat and must be well torelated by the skin. Remember that, especially in kids and in subject with light phototype, erithema and sunburn may occur even in “trivial” sun exposure (such as a walk in the park), so it should be a good habit to apply sunscreen even in the city during summer months”.

Therefore it is necessary to pay a lot of attention to the hours and the time in which children are exposed to sun: avoid sunbathing between 11:30 and 15:30 due to higher concentration of UV rays; you should always remember to make children wear hats with visor and sunglasses, and to apply sunscreen frequently and generously, every two hours before and/or after bathing.

SOS STINGS Hot weather and summer season mean also insects and potentially unpleasant bites. Don’t worry, Dr. Sabbioni gives advice for this too: “In order to soothe mosquito’s stings itching, irritation and swelling, ice and antihistamines are sufficient. Talking about wasps, bees and hornets, the matter becomes more serious. Symptoms are many: from simple local disorders, which regress within 24- 48 hours, up to anaphylaxis, in case of allergic subjects (in this case, alert emergency services as soon as possible by calling local emergency number). These insect’s venom can cause vomiting, diarrhea, headache and fever. If you are stung it’s better to remove the sting with tweezers, apply ice and antihistamines/cortisonic cream to soothe inflammation and itching”.

Ticks are another great danger. It is necessary to monitor their bites for a long time: "Because after 30-40 days it is possible to see a circular skin reaction associated with fever, unwell feeling and muscle pain that should be immediately reported to the pediatrician" - explains Dr. Sabbioni - "The tick should be removed with tweezers, trying to grasp it as close as possible to the skin, then making a traction movement in a rotary direction (it should not be "ripped off") in order to extract it completely. Then disinfect thoroughly and use antihistamines for itching if necessary".
