FDA investigates spray-on sunscreen

CLEVELAND -- Sprays are convenient, but the FDA is now investigating whether spray-on sunscreen is dangerous.

Sprays can irritate airways in the developing lungs of a child, especially those with asthma. Doctors suggest applying spray-on sunscreen in a well-ventilated area and not to spray sunscreen directly onto the face, but rather spray it onto your hand and then apply it to the face.

WKYC's Senior Health Correspondent Monica Robins explains why there is a concern and what you can do to minimize risks.
