Hi, I need some advice please, every time I'm take sun for 30 min, I get rash and itchy on my body, I have this for 3 years now, my sun cream is 50 or more.Thank you for your time
This happens to my sister in law, and she has a sun allergy. There is a special type of sunscreen that she uses that is more effective than the higher SPF brands, but I would probably recommend that you go see a dermatologist to see what they say. I can share that she is able to manage this by limiting her sun exposure, and by using the sunscreen that works best. But a dermatologist was her first stop, as I believe there are a few things that can cause this to happen, but you have to know what might be causing it to find the best treatment.
I hope you find something that works for you...
Its not lupus is it? There are lots of reasons we become photo sensitive (light). I am sensitive because of my medication. Some herbs can make you sensitive.
The sunscreen my SIL uses is Ombrelle (with Mexoryl). She said she has to order it online.
I hope this helps!!
The same thing has been happening to me since I was in high school (and that was a LOOOONG time ago!). I would only get at the beach, no matter how much sunscreen I used or what little time I spent in the sun. I just wanted to be able to take a walk on the beach or play frisbee with the dog without breaking out in a rash; just a few minutes out from under the umbrella would cause it.
I went to several dermatologists: one gave me some nasty stuff to put on the rash (I wanted to keep the rash from happening!) and another just handed me sunscreen samples and told me to limit my time in the sun (!!!! I was already doing that!), until I finally found one who took me seriously. He knew exactly what it was and what to give me to prevent it: Polymorphous light eruption Sun Allergy (Photosensitivity) Guide: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Options
He prescribed a drug that is used as a malaria preventative! I talked to my GP about it, and he was concerned about the side-effects, so he gave me a safer drug, Chloroquine PH. I only use it for the week that we go to the beach, and I can actually get out from under the umbrella with my SPF 50 and enjoy my vacation!!!
Good luck with it....I know, it is a real pain.
No, it's a prescription and it's taken orally. You know, the rash would get better on its own, and that was fine when I was in high school or college and had lots of time off during the summer. But, when you get older and get that one or two weeks, you don't want to spend half of it with a painful, itchy rash! Plus, we just love the beach we go to every year, and I didn't want to give it up. I was thrilled when I finally found something that worked!
I hope one of these solutions will be the answer for you!
