Are You Allergic To The Sun?!

Rashes have all sorts of origins, including pet dander and medications.

But, did you know that some folks are actually allergic to the sun?

Typically, the rash looks like small, red bumps, and appearing after little time in the sun.

It can be itchy or burn, and at times, causes the area to swell or blister.

These rashes mostly occur on the neck or chest, but sometimes the extremities are affected as well.

Some folks are predisposed to this condition; while others develop it after consuming certain medications.

Antibiotics, antidepressants and birth control medication can cause a person to develop this rash.

It’s best to avoid this condition by staying out in the sun.

If you must go out, wear lighter colored clothing that covers the skin or / and use a sunscreen with a factor of 15 or above.

Remember, you can get a sunburn even on cloudy days, so consider staying out of the sun during the “peak” sun hours.
