The brand of sunscreen and the SPF in it matters. If it is not giving good results, avoid sun exposure to the forehead, cover with a soft cotton cloth to avoid direct sunlight in that place.

Apply some sandal wood paste mixed with rosewater. Apply for 20minutes and then rinse. use this 2 dayas a week. This will help to remove the tan

use sun protection cream. SPF more than 15 will help you. apply 1/2 before going outside. it does not have any side effects. even i use to have same problems, but later i used this SPF the tanning is reduced.

use tan remover cream, it will help, tanning is the cause of excessive sun exposure, avoid it and use sunscreen lotion

I have been applying Curaderm treatment to a BBC on the left side of my forehead close to my hairline for a week. This morning I developed swelling on the inside of my eyes and upper nose which came out of no where, along with a mild headache . This is not even close to the skin cancer sight but I thought there might be some correlation. I had Botox treatment between my brows 2 months ago and perhaps there is some relationship. Should I see a doctor or wait to see if the swelling goes down on it s own? If a doctor should be seen is this concern for my dermatologist or GP? Thank you.

I have a very smooth practically perfectly round raised bump thats slightly pale red in color and the size of a pencil eraser on my leg, specifically my chin . I ve had it for a few years but thought nothing of it since I thought it was a scar from shaving. Now I ve started to wonder if it s something else. It seems like its gotten bigger over the past year, currently the size of a pencil eraser, but I can t say for sure. I haven t really paid it much attention till now, I keep cutting it while shaving. I have an appt with dermatologist in a month but I m starting to stress out that it may be skin cancer . Can you get a scar as I described from shaving?

Hi, Just over three years ago my husband had a stage 1 melanoma removed from his lower arm . He was given the all clear. We have now noticed that he has a colourless lump on the side of his nose , at the top of the nostril , not very noticeable but you can feel that there is something there. It is about the size of a flat pencil top rubber. Could this be a return of the melanoma. We are so worried. Thank you

I have an awful caugh and every time I cough I almost puke I ve tanned for 4 years and I smoke and the bruised bump is under my skin and hard and its very painful. The bruise goes on and off.
