My daughter just had her 4th treatment on Monday. We have 60 sunblock and lots of wide brimmed hats for her. My concern is regarding application of the sunblock AND the antibiotic ointment. What effect do they have on each other. I guess you would have to apply the sunblock first, right? Once the antibiotic ointment is applied it is all greasy. Does the glare exacerbate the sun problem? Does application of the sun block have any adverse effects on the skin or the antibiotic ointment? I probably should have asked the doctor but I didn't think of it until we got home. Yesterday we just kept her in the house but I doubt that is going to be possible for a full two weeks. Anyone know the answers to these questions?
