Solarium can cause skin cancer and many other diseases, including skin infections, virus herpes and genital warts. Many of us are aware of these risks, but still continue going in the solarium. But, we hope that this discovery will change your mind.
Dermatologists say that bacteria can survive in spite of the heat in the solarium and sweating only contributes to bacteria and viruses reproduction. Some of these bacteria are Staphylococci, bacteria which cause skin infections, fecal bacteria and genital warts which can lead to HPV. All of them can survive the solarium heat.
Theoretically, ultraviolet light is able to kill bacteria, but in the solarium it doesn`t have the power enough to destroy them.
