That never happened to me. Of course I was born a red head and have always had rather fair skin color so being out in the sun too long usually resulted in a bad sun burn. One time I wore a tank top with open weave and rode my bike too long on a sunny day. I paid for it for several weeks thereafter. Reading was a good way to pass the time without risking that.
