The rona isolation side effects has been less camping, etc and apparently sun exposure. Was sitting a couple hours in the sun talking with some friends Sunday and skin was feeling pretty hot but no one else was complaining, eventually I requested we move to some shade. Holy shit did I get burnt bad (worst on my right leg), not sure I have even gotten burnt this bad. Next day walking around like burning muscle pain but deep in my skin. Skin still feels tight/dry/burny and lower right leg/ankle is swollen, some blisters here and there too.

Never would have imagined that effect from chilling a bit on a Sunday (vs passing out on a beach or something).

I was always told growing up that it is easier to get a sunburn here due to the altitude (thinner atmosphere I guess). Colorado has the highest per-capita rate of skin cancer in the country so maybe there is something to that.

It definitely seems easier at altitude.

The UV exposure level increases even faster than O2 levels drop with elevation.

If you're a whitey and spend a lot of time outdoors, especially in the mountains, probably a good idea to find a dermatologist around age 40-45 and get a yearly full body skin exam.

I had a precancerous mole cut off my back at age 33.

Also, uv intensity went up during the time many of us were children and young adults, so it's probably going to be even worse for us than our parents.

Raw skin.


Seems like it is pretty well cooked at this point.
