Severe Sunburn Causes Dent In Man's Head

We've been warned time and time again about the negative effects of the sun. But it seems that for many people it takes a horrifying personal experience to really understand how dangerous it can be.

Texas native Cade Huckabay tweeted a series of photos of a dent in his shaved head from severe sunburn and other people chimed in to show their experiences with the same. Huckabay's Twitter post featuring his sunburned, dented forehead has gotten over 100,000 retweets since Monday.

He discovered that his head was so swollen he can make a dent in his head. The photos seemed to detail the four stages of swelling that took place, with the third image showing him pressing on the right side of his forehead, and the fourth showing what appears to be an indentation on the same spot he was pressing against.

"I personally thought the sunburn was hilarious," he said. "I mean it isn't often you can put a dent in your head like that." He mentioned on Twitter that he couldn't touch his scalp for a whole day and it took about three to four days for the swelling to go down.

Luckily, Huckabay has learned his lesson and seems more serious about protecting his skin, saying, "I've learned to wear a hat pretty much every time I do any kind of yard work!" As for his responses to concerned followers, he takes full responsibility for his sunburn, and now warns others to wear sunscreen.
