A Case of Sunburn
On the first day after arriving in Miami for spring break vacation, Matt plays out in the sun for six hours. Later that night he notices that the skin on his legs and arms becomes red, swollen and extremely painful. By morning all of the afflicted areas have developed numerous blisters. These areas cover about 30% of his trunk (front and back) and 40% of the arms and legs.

Maria encourages him to quickly begin tanning sessions at a local tanning salon before the effects of the burn wear off.
