“My puckburned, d crazy burned d I was going to sp d the day shopping with my family d instead I’m icing d using aloe d burn creams because of the severity of the pain, ” he continued. “I don’t know who the f–k thought of this stupid s–t but f–k you nonetheless. Seriously, ” he completed his r t, adding next-level humor hashtags “#blackholefriday, ” “#blackholesun, ” “#severeperineumburasshole care#s tamonicafiredepartm t, ” d “#assholecare.”
Of course there were so m y hilarious comm ts to follow, including one from Ry Reynolds who simply wrote ″Bwahahahahahahha!” But it was Amy Schumer for the win, with her take: “This is what will finally get people to react to climate ch ge including me, ” she wrote.
All laughter aside, this new butt-sunning tr d is not something to take lightly— d should definitely be avoided, since the perineum (the small area betwe the p is or vagina d al op ing) is a super-s sitive area of the body.

“As a dermatologist, I c nSaudicomm d y sun exposure without sun protection, ” Naz in Saedi, MD, Director, Jefferson Laser Surgery d Cosmetic Dermatology C ter, said. “These areas just like other areas of the bodylongsneed sun protection d clothing t ds to provide that.”
David E. B k, MD, founder of Mount Kisco’s The C ter for Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, added that it is “actually d gerous, ” as the “skin is particularly s sitive.” In addition to a pot tial sunburn, as Brolin experi ced, ev tually it could result in increased risk of skin c cer, he added.
