A little too much sun

CANADA | Thursday, 4 March 2010 | Views [4087]

Before the four hour sea kayaking tour in Canada I applied SPF 50 sunscreen to protect me from the sun. After the tour I noticed that I had been sunburnt on my face and legs which had been exposed the entire time. Within two days the burns had become considerably worse and were blistering – covering my entire shins, and my legs ankles and feet were so swollen that I couldn’t walk without assistance. I went to the hospital and the doctor diagnosed second degree burns on my legs – prescribing pain medication and bed rest.

How WN Helped

They compensated me for the hospital visit and prescription.

PAID AUD $695.05
