Harmed by Sunscreen? What Parents Need to Know

It's been more than 3 weeks, and 14-month-old Kyla Fudge is still recovering from a painful, blistering rash that spread over her cheeks and nose, right where her mom had spread a palmful of Banana Boat Kids Free spray sunscreen.

Her story has incensed parents across the internet. Her mom understands why.

"Nobody, adult or child, deserves to go through that. That was insane. That was the hardest couple of weeks of our lives," says Kyla's mom, Rebecca Cannon, 32, of Newfoundland, Canada.

The family had gone to visit Kyla's aunt and cousins. The older kids wanted to play outside. The day was overcast and slightly chilly, but the sun was peeking in and out from behind the clouds, so Cannon dressed her daughter in a coat and hat and dabbed some of the Banana Boat spray on her nose and cheeks, where her face was exposed.

They'd never used the product before, but Rebecca read the label. It said it was safe for babies over the age of 6 months.
