BUSH SUMMER WARNING: I GOT TOO MUCH SUN!
Reporters following President Bush this weekend in Kennebunkport were stunned at the appearance of elder Bush -- who sported bright red sores on his cheeks from sun-induced lesions.
"I got too much sun, that's all" the former president said. "It looks much worse than it is."
Bush underwent two-weeks of treatment for keratoses last month, it was revealed.
Bush, 78, said he was feeling fine, but his son still poked fun. "Let's hear it," the president instructed reporters. "Make the old boy feel better."
Mayo Clinic officials described the elder Bush's sun-induced keratoses as "focal areas of damage in the top layers of skin caused by sun exposure over the years. These are not skin cancers, ... and the prognosis for total recovery is excellent."
Bush remained covered with various ballcaps during this weekend's outdoor activities.
But the sun's shocking effect of the former president's skin, as these photos show, is a stark summer reminder to sun lovers worldwide to be ever mindful of its dangrous rays.
