Sunscreen lotions have good protection if its used in higher range more than 18 or even 20. lower range sun screeners is not use ful. yes use of old sun screeners can cause allergic like reaction. other wise there are no issue on sunsreeners.
General & Family Physician Dr. Misbha khan's  Response
using a sunscreen does not have any side effects. it is better to use a sunscreen with SPF 20 even upto SPF 30. you have to use the sunscreen before stepping out of your house. Also remember to reapply sunscreen every 3-4 hours when you are outside your home.

Sunscreens i think do not cause any sideeffects if you use the correct SPF and the right brand which suits your skin. But do not use the old sunscreens after the expiry date
