I have to move on to another sunscreen, as the one I used to like (and was recommended by my dermatologist) is not being made any more. So what brands and spf's do you folks use? And who did you get the recommendation from? Was it your tx center, your dermo doc, or someone else?

Thanks for your input. We've had a ton of rain but once it clears, I'll be doing a bit more stuff in the yard.

  • I find that Turtle wax  is awesome ....   lol  ...   actually I use water babies  spf  45

  • When I asked the transplant Dermatologist, he said any "known" brand that is 45spf or higher was OK with him. I have since used Coppertone mostly, but have used others when cheaper. Can't see any difference and have had only one skin cancer after almost 10 years. I believe that one was started prior to transplant when I was less prudent about sun screen.
