Avatar f tn You can use pretty much any kind, but I would make sure it is at least 30 spf though anything over 50 spf isn't really that much more effective. Also, in general your skin is much more sensitive to the sun so be careful about how much time you spend in the sun. I got burned after only an hour or so and I was using sunscreen and avoiding the brightest times of day (11—3).
Avatar n tn I am 33 yrs old and pregnant. My skin is very sensitive and I get breakouts very easily and quickly.Can you please tell me which sunblock and moisturiser/ cream (for face) is safe and good for me to use.
4936507 tn?1365365267 Hi everyone. I have what I have chalked up to be just extremely sensitive skin, but only in certain areas. It started a couple of years ago when moisturizers I was using around my eyes and eyelids suddenly started causing a weird rash just under my eyebrows. It feels like it has been scratched and it itches and burns like crazy if I put anything on it. I started trying all different kinds of all natural, hypoallergenic, organic, etc types of moisturizers, all with the same affect.
176808 tn?1294681491 I'm in a different country but we have specially formulated "toddler" milk sunscreens here. I also found that my son's skin got less sensitive as he got older.
176808 tn?1294681491 I felt like this may have just been a reaction to being in the chlorinated water of the pool for a while, but my wife feels like it was a reaction to the sunblock. Last we tried Neutragena for Sensitive Skin, which is chemical free, and hypoallergenic. With this, she seemed to get a rash on her body. We've given her Benedryl each time she's had a reaction, but we're definitely concerned. We're trying to get her an appointment with a local dermatologist, but the soonest we can get is 1.

On January 5, 2011 I got a rhinoplasty, facial fat grafting to my cheeks, and a Vi peel (7% TCA, 2% salicylic acid, 8% retinoic acid). I was under anesthesia when the peel was performed. I became crusty and brown and peeled quite a lot. The skin peeled for about a week and then looked absolutely radiant.
Avatar n tn I have skin discoloration from bruise, insect bites,cut or burn after healing it leaves a spot that never goes away. I am 39 years and I have had this problem since I was teenager. I use bleaching creams for a period of two weeks or less as long there is no sign of improvement I discontinue.
168348 tn?1379360675 the Helioplex one and it stated oil free and ultra sheer and good for sensitive skin so THANKS ALOT ALL!!!! I'll let you know how it goes!
Avatar n tn I've never really considered the fact that the two might be linked. Thank you for this question it really makes a girl think. I've always been more prone to stress and it turns out my family (ALL of the women) lack Vit B.. which is often used to deal with stress. I always seem to get stressed out. .which causes more breakouts! I never had out of control breakouts, but I did and still do from time to time break out. My husband got me a engagement ring and it is silver.
Avatar f tn For one thing, I assumed my skin would have completely healed by now, however I've noticed that my skin barrier is still on the weak side because 1) My skin is still a bit sensitive to water; I have to wash very lightly or i'll notice that my skin becomes less elastic, and 2) I have to apply makeup in a very thin layer, otherwise it just looks disastrous. I'm assuming this is because there is still a lot of underlying dryness as well. However, my biggest problem now is with my eyelids.

Avatar n tn I threw away lots of old makeup and now use Neutrogena makeup products with sunblock and top it off with thier Ultra-sheer sunblock with SPF45 on my face and neck. Oddly enough, I was using the KIEHL'S products on my face (moisturizing cleanser, herbal toner, make-up remover,eye treatment, regular moisturizer with SPF, and lip balm with SPF)during the period when the first signs of pigmentation occurred so I discontinued and noticed that my lips are slowly getting back to normal.
Avatar n tn that's is most likely not skin cancer at all. it sounds like tinea versicolor possibly. google that term and look at the images. if that's what you have it is a fungal infection that is often times caught in tanning beds. that is absolutely not the only place people catch it, but common. and it is very very common on the chest and back. easily treatable. you'll need a prescription. skin cancer comes by way of scaly sores, weird bumps , lesions etc.
Avatar n tn a long time ago (maybe a year or so), i was talking to someone about some brown patches on my skin (and theirs) that look like collections of freckles, and that my endo said they were caused by my thyroid problem. i said i'd post if i found any more info, so hopefully whoever i was talking to will see this!
4896357 tn?1360674504 I remember that next time around BoGal..... I could just feel my skin being sensitive & I have dark skin....I'll try a different approach if I start soon....
Avatar f tn ive researched it but cant seem to figure out what it is and now im worried becouse it seems to be spreading but only on the skin in and around my tattoo. these spots look like if you had a mosquito bite that you never stopped scratching. my skin around it seems to feel a little thicker and kind of numb. they are flat and not bumpy. anyone have anything like this or any idea about it.
Avatar f tn com/store/c/neutrogena-ultra-gentle-foaming-daily-cleanser/ID=prod6119682-product For makeup, mineral makeup like Bare Minerals would be a good choice, Clinique is awesome for super sensitive skin (and their washes and moisturizers are all sensitive skin friendly), but that can get very pricy, Almay also is hypoallergenic. Those are a few makeup brands to try off te top of my head.
Avatar f tn ) my dermatologist prescribed me some things to rub on my face, plus an antibiotic, few days after, in still occuring now that im on my 4th week, my skin seems very sensitive and easily irritated, my dermatologist says its dry (well, that's how the prescription makes my skin as i've an oily one), so later on i was given a non comodegenic sunblock, then when i applied it some little pustules appears on my skin again/pimples...is this normal? 2.
Avatar n tn My four year old has sensitive skin and a little bit of eczema. I have tried the Blue Lizard Sensitive Sunscreen, as well as the Aveeno Baby Sunblock. Both of these have caused a rash. Last summer we used the Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard + SPF 30 and he did not break out. My hesitation to use it again comes from the information I read on cosmeticdatabase.com about the ingredients, as well as the fact that I don't want to reapply the insect repellant as often as I have to apply the sunscreen.
Avatar m tn I haven't had any other notable symptoms. I know sunblock can irritate little kids skin because their skin is so sensitive.
Avatar f tn I went to the beach and wore sunblock (spf 30) all day, but I still burned. I was surprised how sensitive my skin was. I'm pretty light skinned but before my pregnancy, i usually only put on spf 15 and would be fine. I even burned on the tops of my toes, it was horrible!
Avatar n tn ( My sister has pretty bad allergies and sensitive skin (she can only use certain detergents and soaps) Maybe that's whats happening to me even though I haven't changed anything except my mascara.
Avatar n tn I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.

Avatar n tn Your skin is a lot more sensitive then before you were pregnant, so just be smart about the time you spend in the sun, like the other girls said, sunblock and water are a must!
798332 tn?1237477775 It was so much hotter because my skin was sensitive. Just itchy and misrable. On top of the itch and dry skin I already had from the drugs.....not good.....I opted for tanning cream instead. I spend alot of time at the beach...only now in the cool evening breeze. Much more comfortable.
Avatar n tn You need to use a sunscreen/sunblock when you do go out to minimize the effect of sunlight on your sensitive skin. Also keep your face well moisturized to prevent dry skin.This is best done immediately after a bath because it helps to "lock-in" the moisture. For the scratch marks you can aply an antibactrial ointment like Mupirocin. the depimnented ares left behind by these scratches will resolve with time.
Avatar f tn On the other hand, sunblock physically reflects the suns rays from the skin, blocking the rays from penetrating the skin. Sunscreen and sunblock are both excellent forms of sun protection. Each uses different chemicals to protect the skin against the sun's damaging UV rays. Most sunblocks utilize titanium oxide or zinc oxide as the active ingredient, which results in a thicker, opaque consistency.
Avatar m tn After a few days she gets a red very itchy rash on her thighs, abdomen and some parts of her arms. The strange thing is that her skin is perfectly normal exactly where her bathers are covering her. Is it possible that the sun has something to do with this? It usually itches the most in the evening. Do you think it is the sun? Maybe combined with chlorine? We use extra sensitive sun screen.
