I really don't understand the questions as to why the child has to wear sunscreen, or any other replies like that.
Skin cancers are one of Australia's biggest health problems. My grandfather died from complications at having one removed, my aunts have had severe facial surgery, my father has scars all over his body from having them removed for as long as i can remember, and a guy I worked with died at the age of 43, leaving behind 4 kids under 5.
I have had 2 cut out, and have just been told I have to have another removed from my eyelid! I am 36!
While many of you will say I have a genetic predisposition, who cares? Please, look after your children and put sunscreen on them daily, and try and get them to apply themselves when old enough.
No matter where you live, you will get them, and with the protective ozone layer destroyed, the southern states are just as at risk as the northern states!
Sorry for hijacking your thread op!
Try sard wonder soap and soak overnight.
