Sunscreen Agents (Topical)
Precautions While Using This Product
If rash or irritation develops, stop using the sunscreen and check with
Sunscreen agents containing aminobenzoic acid, lisadimate, padimate O,
or roxadimate may discolor and stain light-colored fabrics yellow.
In addition to using sunscreen agents, it is advisable to minimize exposure
to the sun from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
daylight savings time)
when the sun is at its strongest. Take extra
precautions also on cloudy or overcast days and around reflective surfaces
such as concrete, sand, snow, or water, since these surfaces can reflect the
sun's damaging rays. Wear protective clothing including a hat, long-sleeved
shirt, and long pants. Sunglasses also should be worn to avoid sun damage
to the eyes (cataract formation). Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlors because
these can damage the skin and eyes as direct sunlight can.
