Overexposure to strong sunlight, especially in the middle of the day, can cause painful inflammation resulting in redness, swelling and blistering of the skin, though these symptoms and signs may not appear until some hours after exposure. As the inflammation subsides, the burnt skin surface will flake or peel off.Long-term overexposure to sunlight can lead to freckling, premature ageing of the skin and skin cancer. Fair-skinned people, particularly children, are especially vulnerable to sunburn.
