Mom Warns Others about Sunscreen After Her Baby Suffers 2nd Degree Burns

Those blisters are second-degree burns, but McGee says she took all the necessary precautions.

There is also something to be said about the questionable ingredients in certain sunscreens.

The mom says she was using Banana Boat Broad Spectrum SPF 50 sunscreen in an aerosol container. Theoretically, a sun protection factor (SPF) of 100 would allow the user to expose its skin to the sun 100 times longer before being burnt.

And then it got worse.

It's been nearly two weeks since the incident, and Rebecca said that Kyla's skin is still very red but the blisters have subsided. It scabbed and cracked.

Doctors are keeping her kids - Trey and Trenity - out of school for at least three days for second-degree burns. The culprit seemed obvious.

"Ok so I'm getting many msgs and just want everyone to know Kyla is back home after another hospital trip this morning due to extream swelling but she is doing ok and is in good spirits. please watch and be careful when using aerosolized sunscreen!".

With the post, she included several photos of her daughter Kyla, who has visible burns to her face as well as a swollen eye. She returned to the ER and they referred her to a specialist who diagnosed the tyke with "caustic burn from something in the sunscreen".

Cannon said Banana Boat offered a refund and said it would test the sunscreen, which is also being independently tested.

Cannon told the outlet that she applied the same brand of sunscreen to her 3-year-old nephew but didn't see any adverse side effects. Most sunscreens sold today help protect against both.

Still, even the safest sunscreens need to be reapplied every two hours, sometimes more if you're sweating or in the water - even if using a "waterproof" or "water-resistant" product.

Since it's known that long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation is directly linked to skin damage and skin cancers, DermalYouth is using Skin Cancer Awareness Month to warn people of all ages, especially children, to take proper steps to protect themselves from the damaging rays of the sun every day.

The council's chief scientist, Beth Jonas, says the "rigorous" FDA testing and regulation of these products is sufficient. 'Infant skin is much more irritable'. However, UVA exposure adds up throughout a person's life without proper protection, which Lunder says is only offered through mineral-based sunscreens containing either zinc oxide or avobenzone, neither of which break down in the sun.

Healing: Kyla's skin is now healing up - although her cheeks are still pink where the spray was used.
