neuropathy and sunburn

I have lived with neuropathy for almost a decade. I take precautions while I cook because I have diminished feeling in my hands. I know to let the attendant know I have diminished feeling on the right side of my face when I get a facial, and to please start on my left side so that I can orient myself to what it feels like. I know to wear sunscrean every day of the year beacuse I can not feel my skin getting hot from the sun. For some odd reason, I was preoccupied with taking care of everyone else on a recent outing and forgot to apply my sunscrean. The wind was blowing and I was having a great time at the local pool. I did not realize that I was getting a second degree sunburn until I saw the look of horror on my Mom's face as I came back home. Luckily, I had some compound lotion with lidocaine and ibuprofen along with about ten other medicines. This compound lotion is what I use to treat surface area neuropathy, and it really helped me out with the sunburn. Lesson learned...apply my own sunscrean on myself before I get too busy with my kids and forget.
