MAGLIANO, Julio et al. Hábitos de fotoprotección en los niños que concurren a Dermatología Pediátrica del Centro Hospitalario Pereira Rosell: Photoprotective habits in children seen at the Pediatric Dermatology Unit of CHPR. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2016, vol.87, n.3, pp.210-220. ISSN 0004-0584.

Introduction: exposure to ultraviolet radiation during childhood and adolescence plays an important role in the future development of skin cancer. Children are three times more sun exposed than adults. Before age 21, people receive between 50 and 80% of the total solar radiation throughout their lives. Objective: to determine what parents know about the impact of the sun on the skin and eyes, and to learn about their photoprotective habits for them and their children and some associated factors. Methods: a cross-sectional study to parents of children who were seen at the Pediatric Dermatology Unit of CHPR during the months of October 2013 to January 2014. Results: a total of 100 surveys were conducted, the average age of the children was 7.85 years old, 62% of the children came from families of low socioeconomic status. 43% of respondents declared who like to be tan, compared to 28% who did not like it. The most widely used photoprotective measure by both parents (73%) and children (86%) was sunscreen, followed by sunglasses in adults and the routine use of a cap by children. Conclusions: the photoprotection method used is based largely, on sunscreen but with an improper use in most of the respondents.
