High Altitude and your Skin



This is my husband!  in the Dolomites in Italy.  He is a mountaineering guide based in Utah, as well as a physician and web developer.

He is pretty good at reapplying sunblock which is crucial when he is on the job.  Most sunblocks last only a couple hours and need reapplication.  He also tries to where a brim on his hat or helmet to protect his eyes and skin.  I check his face, neck and ears monthly for any odd skin lesions just in case.  His climbing buddies tend to get problems with pre-cancers on their neck and ears.
