BUFFALO, N.Y. -- There's outrage nationwide over a school's policy in Washington State that caused two young girls to get severely sunburned, and that could have an impact here locally.

Sisters Violet and Zoe Michener of Tacoma, Washington arrived home from school last week with severe burns, after the school denied them access to sunscreen. They were out in the blistering sun for several hours during the annual field day event.

"It was horrifying to see her bright, red face," Jesse Michener said of one of her daughters during an interview that aired on NBC's Today Show.

The school district said it was prohibited from allowing the pre-teens to use sunscreen, because it is technically considered an over-the-counter drug, which require a doctor's prescription or note in addition to parental permission.

Michener is now challenging the state law banning the application of sunscreen. It turns out, every state except California also bans sunscreen use without a doctor's permission.

New York State's guidelines to school districts say, "A written order from a duly licensed prescriber and written parental permission to administer the medication are required."

Dr. Eugene Bain, a dermatologist at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, said that regulation goes too far.

"It's disconcerting when we hear about these impediments to children using sunscreen, because these are safe products," Dr. Bain said. "It's somewhat silly that children must have a prescription for over-the-counter products."

School leaders in Washington State and other parts of the country have said the regulations are needed, because kids could have an allergic reaction or other medical condition as a result of the sunscreen use.

When weighing the risks, Dr. Bain disagreed.

"The chances of a child having a reaction to sunscreen are much lower than the chance of having an adverse reaction to overexposure," Dr. Bain said, adding that skin cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer and affects millions of people every year.

Erie County Legislators Edward Rath and Lynne Dixon proposed a resolution that asks New York State's Department of Education to change its regulations to exempt sunscreen from requiring a doctor's note.

"It's high time that the New York State Department of Education modify these regulations and treat sunscreen as something that is preventative and not quite as serious of a drug as a prescription drug is right now," Legislator Rath said.

Rath's proposal, should the Education Department or State Legislature enact it, would make school policy similar to that of local YMCA summer camps, which send home a form to parents, allowing them to sign off on topical applications -- like sunscreen, lip balm and bug spray -- without involving a doctor.


I glow in the dark and my great niece is pale. I carry sunscreen and use it on her and myself at the playground! You can get unscented so no one would need to know. This is BULLSHIT! I'd be suing, too! Future damage and the suffering of the burns they got that day!

Re: Stupid Sunscreen Ban in Washington State!!

Okay, the kid has a form of 'albinism' and the mom didn't put sunscreen on her that morning. So what it was fucking rainy, did the dumb bitch not watch the forecast? And there was a field day, another reason to watch the weather. Let's see, kid has a medical condition and will be outside today, should I watch the fucking news??

Oh wait, now she has a reason to sue the school district, right? A sunburn.

I never use sunscreen. I do go tanning though, which actually helps protect the skin from burns. The less exposed to sunlight you are higher the chance of you burning and developing a cancer. Malignant melanoma is most commonly found under the nails, on the soles of feet, palms of hands and other areas where sunlight exposure doesn't occur often. People with very fair skin shouldn't tan or go without a low level of sunscreen/hats/sunglasses. A minimal amount of sunlight is vital though due to vitamin D production.

That being said, I do put it on my daughter because she's a child. Children do need protection from the sun because their skin is far more sensitive than an adults. Not allowing a child sun protection is stupid. If they didn't want to allow them an "OTC drug" why didn't they let them go in a shaded area or call the parents?

Maybe mom should have put sunscreen on her damn kids if she knew they were prone to burning and were going to be outside for a prolonged period of time.

Let me get this straight.

"I never use sunscreen. I do go tanning though, which actually helps protect the skin from burns. The less exposed to sunlight you are higher the chance of you burning and developing a cancer." I hate to even ask if you're tanning using artificial light (tanning beds etc).

Perhaps you should educate yourself on the effects of UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun. Here's a link to start you off.
http://www.skincancer.org/prevention...eens-explained

Preventing burns is not the point of using sunscreens, sunshine. Sunscreens are used to block UVA and UVB rays ...which actually need no amount of 'burning' to turn tanned skin into a raging case of skin cancer. I'm seriously rolling my eyes at what you said, mostly because of how very inaccurate you are with your 'facts'. Don't share incorrect information that people may construe as correct, it's both dangerous and careless. All the power to you if you think you're protected by some veil of safety ...all the best to you as you begin to age prematurely, wrinkle, sag and become leathery.

And just for a visual ..here is a photograph that recently appeared on CNN. A truck driver who drove for about 27 years in big rigs on the highway with the window UP. The damage on the side of his face against the window was caused from UVA rays and had nothing to do with burning. Sexy isn't it? Keep up the sexy tan lines there honey.

I have educated myself. As for premature aging etc, the lotions that are used in indoor tanning have ingredients to help prevent that stuff. Also if you're properly hydrated, you properly moisturize and have good nutrition you'll decrease your risk of cosmetic skin damage.

If you go tanning everyday for 20 minutes then yeah expect some shitty results. But it's the same as smoking, drinking and eating fast food. Do it in moderation. Excessive amounts of ANYTHING is bad.

I'm not going to argue with stupidity.
