About half of US adults suffer from sunburn each year, and nearly 2/3 of all children. More than 30,000 visits to EDs and UCs every year for sunburn injuries. As much as we fear sunburn, 47% of the US population are unlikely to protect themselves from sun exposure. Erythema from sunburn is usually observable 3-5h after UVB exposure, peaks as 12-24h, and fades over 72h--leads to vasodilation of superficial blood vessels and increased vascular permeability, and edema.
