SunSkin is a personal interactive app that provides you with information about protecting your skin from the sun.
The app allows you to check the UV index in your location and tells you what your risk of harm is from unprotected skin exposure. You can check your UV index locally or in another city or state if you are travelling. The UV index information is sourced directly from the National Weather Service and EPA and indicates the strength of solar UV radiation on scale from 1 (low) to 11+ (extremely high). You can use the UV index to take appropriate sun-protective behaviors and avoid overexposure to UV radiation.
The app provides treatment information for once-a-day Carac® (fluorouracil cream 0.5%) and tips on using Carac to help treat your actinic keratosis including treatment alerts and a prescription rebate coupon.
Check the UV Index locally or anywhere in the US to check your risk from solar UV radiation.
Optional reminder alerts to help you manage your Carac treatment regime.

Tips on sun protection and using Carac.
Carac cream is indicated for the topical treatment of skin conditions on the face and front part of the scalp, called solar keratosis or actinic keratosis.
