Answer

Limiting outdoor activities (especially between 10 am and 4 pm) should be recommended to all patients, particularly fair-skinned, elderly patients. Even young patients should be advised to take precautions against excessive sun exposure, to reduce the risk of developing cutaneous malignancies in future.
