Edited to add:

I did not experience this personally, I do not have a son. The following is an introduction from the author in the Source: Link. (I’ve added quotation marks to show her original words)

I also feel compelled to tell you that parenting is tough stuff! For a number reasons, we are all scrutinized for the tiniest indiscretion, especially when children are involved. Perhaps the mother in the post topic had a bad day, maybe the sunscreen from whichever dollar store it was purchased was really old or experienced extreme temperatures, maybe the sun was exceptionally strong that day (from a solar storm or something…).

Well, I’m not defending the mother per-say, I’m also not saying anyone who uses this sunscreen is a bad parent.

I shared the post to help anyone who might find the information and experience useful.

Maybe you or your kids have sensitive skin, maybe if you hadn’t seen this one persons account right before your vacation, you would have bought this very same product and had this very same horrific outcome.


Let’s try to be mindful of the fact that once we do or say something, anything, we cannot UN-do it. Even on the internet.


“I do not usually do things like this, but I felt compelled to share our families experience, so hopefully no one has to suffer like my son did.  Last Wednesday our family decided to go swimmin…”

My deepest apologies for the misleading post.
