I live in FL. Lots of Sun. I was instructed by my Dr. to stay out of the Sun. When I do go out it seems to really irritate my skin. I, personally would not advise. I wait until night to go in my pool, or a least have yourself covered from direct sunlight.
· burn more easily · burn more quickly · get hives or rashes · have other skin eruptions Ribavirin Although it is not categorized as a common medication, the antiviral drug ribavirin may cause or enhance photosensitivity.

If you have been taking the Incivek for 5 days and you have a rash, your rash may very well be from the Incivek. Of course it could be from the Ribavirain, but it could be from the Incivek. Regardless, get on top of it immediately. It can and will snowball out of control if you do not get it under control right away. You do not state how bad the rash is or if you are using anything on the rash.
I have been getting skin rashes from my early childhood. These Rashes tend to come mostly during the Summer months of the year. They usually seem like a mosquito bite. They first occurs behind the ear, then around the neck, head scalp and spread to the back. Finally i get them even in my face. They are very itchy . They usually seem to have a cycle like 24 hours. They start by afternoon and get intense by evening and disappear while i sleep. The body gets heated up so much during that time.
I was in the sun this weekend for atleast 4-5 hrs. The sun here in US is very strong. I used to be in sun in India as well but it wasnt this bad. I have a burning and itching sensation after being in sun for more than a hr and that turns into red rashes/hives the next day which covers my entire face and arms. It itches and it feels terribly hot on the affected area. I have typically dry skin so the problem worsens. I am also Hypothyroid for which i am taking proper medication.
I mean my body itches then rashes start to appear.
MILK OF MAGNESIA is what my daughter's skin teacher uses for her lupus rashes. She gets them all over her face, neck and body, as does her little brother (3 people in her family have Lupus). The Milk of Magnesia tames the redness. I haven't tried it yet, as I only have a slight "blush" on my face. So I don't worry about it. But give it a try and let us know what you get from it.
i have been consulting a doctor about my skin rashes.He said that these rashes are "solar allergies".Every time i take some medicine for this, the rashes go away temporarily and i get clear glowing skin.

HCQS tablet i live in the region where there is sunny climate all the time.i always wear cap,scarf or suncoat when i am out in sun.
I have lived in Spain (from UK) for 7 years....i had a bi-pass 3years ago at he age of 68...10 months ago i started getting itchy rashes on hands ,arms and thighs I have worked in the tropics in the past and enjoyed the Sun here in Spain, then suddenly this !! I am on BP drugs (BetaBlocker, vein flow etc), i have had these analysed and changed to see if there is a response agaist the Sun....no change !
and i almost got the rash until i discovered why it was reacting like this. I do have sensitive skin, although over time your skin becomes more sensitive. I got rashes when I used tanning oil ...and it was bad...this time I said I was going to be smart and use sunscreen and then all the sudden i felt itchy around my chest area. I thought i was doing everything right but i discovered that you need sunblock but it has to be an OIL FREE based sunscreen!!! Thats the answer!...
Let me start from the beginning. When i was about 11 or 12, was the first time i noticed this problem. Then it was a hot summer and i developed a rash on the back of my leg/legs right behind my knee and on my hand. It did not affect me every year. But now that i am 24, I get it every year only on my elbows. It itches so so bad, and it looks like little small red bumps. It usually goes away by this time of year, but not this year. I really think it is caused by the sun but i am not sure.
Hello , My name is Mélanie and I believe I have a sun allergy. Everytime I go outside , even in winter , in less than a minute any area that is not coverd is busting out into hives. I have gone outside without sunscreen or any products on my skin to see if the rash and hives would come , and they still did. I currently use neutrogena ultra seer and baby face for my sun routine , and cover up everywere. Today I received hives and a rash on my hands and feet.
I have NEVER really had a problem with the sun until after the birth of my third child and it seems my skin is VERY sensitive to lots fo things now. But this was the first time I have had such a reaction to the sun before. I took some benedryl and put some otc cortisone cream on it and it is starting to go away. Any Ideas as to why this is happening and if it is truly a sun reaction? Thnanks for your time...I know you are busy!!
My skin is very sensitive to sun. I have blue eyes & pale skin, and am allergic to sun. My allergy is 'awaken' only when I burn my skin when I am on the beach or a similar place that has no tree or house shadows. Then I feel a sudden, very strong and irresistable rash all over the place that has been burnt by the sun. I cannot concentrate on anything else except to rash. I am then scrubbing that area usually with the towel but as I rub more, the rash intensifies!!
I'm just staying out of the sun.....I do not want those rashes/itchy skin and the sun can only make things worst. Hope you find a good doctor. Where do you live? I know a good one in San Diego at UCSD. I know weight is a concern. I lost a huge amount of weight before starting the program. The first time on the program, I was heavy and was a relapser so I did everything I could this time around to try to put myself in a better place for success. Good luck on getting treatment.
I realize that sun allergy has been discussed, and I did post a comment, but I have questions .... Last August, I began to have rashes from sun exposure. They seem to start always on my right forearm as separate bumps. As I am exposed to sun - small to large rash patches of small bumps appear. They are extremely itchy, burny when scratched and more itchy when scratched. They have appeared on my arms, chest, back, neck and legs.
I have the rashes and itching also. I use nivea cream and a lotion I got from the doctor that works really good. Triamcinolone Acetonide 0.1% lotion. It is similar to what someone else on this forum suggested. The little red spots are still there but not as itchy. Also, lotion down your body after a shower while it is still damp. This helped me alot.
I'm an African-American male and since last summer, I have been experiencing rashes that occur after any exposure to the sun. The first occurance was after a day at the beach (Indiana) and I broke out with a red rash on my chest, neck, arms, face and lips. Since that time, covered up or not, I break out in some form of a rash. I have used, sun block, sun screen, vitamins and still the same result.
Aveeno lotion for short term relief. (no, i don't have stock in the company) Flaxseed oil capsules swiftly helped me. The itch is from hepatitis c, and was sheer nightmare all day long and night. Milk thistle helps too, but maybe for me it was the combo of them together, as i started milk thistle for 2 months but wammo, when i started flaxseed oil, it was almost overnight a blessed relief occurred. Good luck.
Dear dr, i have red rashes on my face which gives me lot of irritations.i guess i started having this problem atleast for the past 6 years.I have consulted many doctors but it seems that no one could actually make out what it is.it started as a small circle in my eye area and i thought it might be bcoz of the dryness.I rubbed it with my wet hand and the dryness or that scales have gone.So i didnt give much importance to it.slowly it started getting worse.
I have tried to explain it as feeling like a chemical burn from the inside out. When the sun hits it even through the car window I feel myself cringing like a vampire in the light. I can't even open my eyes in the direct sun. I am fair skinned and I have felt almost a anxiety attack when I am stuck in the sun. Again like the vampire I want to flee. This was tough over the summer since my daughter was on swim team. I also feel like the Procrit shot feels like battery acid being shot in my arm.
i am using betnovate n cream from last six years now when i discontinued using it this causes red rashes on my cheek and forehead kindly tell me should i use tacrolimus cream to take out of this problem kindly answer me
Continuing to post questions in this way will result in your being banned from the Forums. 1. Rashes are not appropriately addressed over the internet. They need to be examined by a trained clinician. The rash you describe is not suggestive however of herpes or warts. Your description does not sound like wither of these processes. More importantly both herpes and HPV infections (warts) are spread through DIRECT contact.
Although the sun can cause some skin reaction from exposure, the bigger issue for me was the heat and sweating. If you are beginning to develop any rashes, heat/sweating will likely trigger a worse reaction causing the rash to get worse and cover more of the skin's surface. It helps to keep your skin cool and dry. If you want to experiment with sun exposure, I'd suggest to do it in very small intervals. I used to cycle frequently during tx and would cover up in sunscreen.
I developed a theory while on tx about the nervous system reaction to the meds. My belief is that the whole nervous system, large and small nerve endings become enhanced somehow, sort of like hypersensitive to everything; cold, heat, spices, mint, etc. It is as if they are in a state of hyperalertness. In my case, i touched hot metal and the reaction (in feeling) was as if I had 2nd degree burns, but upon looking, there was hardly even redness.
The most frequent early symptom of Spongiotic Dermatitis is inflammation on the skin followed by visual aspect of blistering skin rashes, which are extremely noticeable and frequently have fluid inside the blisters.Due to excessive itching, there is often scarring on the affected areas, which on occasions will remain for life. Alternatively, you should immediately visit your doctor so that your condition can be properly diagnosed and evaluated and put forward an effective treatment program.
