Protection and Prevention.
Just remember to take special care at the hottest time of the day - between 11.00am and 3.00pm - by staying in the shade or covering up with loose fitting clothes and a hat. When on holiday, build up the time you spend in the sun very gradually.
Babies under six months should be kept out of direct sun. From the age of six months, if they go in the sun they will need sun screen preparation of at least Factor 20, which you should buy from the chemist and apply at regular intervals. Children should wear a tee shirt and hat, or stay in the shade, at the hottest times of the day.
