- Try to avoid direct sunlight during peak hours of the day.
- Use sunscreen, clothes and hats to protect your skin.
- Avoid tanning salons.
- Though we all need to be careful with sun exposure, people on medications that suppress the immune system for conditions like Crohn’s and arthritis are more susceptible to skin cancer.
