571042 tn?1271450741 I tried to wipe it off but I don't think I helped at all. Blake does have sensitive skin though. She had worn the sunscreen since with no problems. The trick ( I have found) is to put the sunscreen on her hands when we get to wherever we are going so she is distracted and doesn't think to rub her eyes.
Avatar f tn I have incredibly sensitive skin. nearly ever sunscreen I have ever tried has caused a fine, itchy rash that makes my skin feel tight. It takes 3-5 days of using the product for the rash to appear. Upon stopping the sunscreen, it takes about 2 weeks for the rash to go away. There are very few sunscreens that my face seems to tolerate. They are the "natural" sunscreens (Origins and Burt's Bees, JASON). However, I am indian and they make me look sickly, grey.
29837 tn?1414538248 are for the most sensitive tx skin and both chemical and fragrance free with no PABA. Because they are a "block" (Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide) the protection is immediate as opposed to the 20 minute or so wait for products that use chemicals. If your skin can handle some chemicals (better cosmetic absorption) the other Blue Lizard products are relatively mild for the skin.
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 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 However sunscreens do not have any significant cross reaction with Clindamycin unless you are sensitive to any cosmetic agents of topical anti biotics.
8793709 tn?1409597660 Sunscreen is a must. With insect repellent you can apply it to the skin as long as it does not contain deet.
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 f tn Hello I'm a first time mother and I'm having a summer baby and was wondering if I can put sunscreen on my new born . I read some articles that say is good after 6 months but did any mom use sunscreen for their newborn comment please?
Avatar m tn I too have very sensitive skin. The things I do are I avoid sun and never go out without sunscreen. Wash your face and don't touch often it could spread acne on your face.
171768 tn?1324233699 With my first dd, I used the coppertone waterbabies one. She never had a reaction to it, and never burned. However, she doesn't have sensitive skin when it comes to products, and she also has a little darker skin from my side of the family. She has never had a sunburn. I made sure to put it on her head also, because she hated wearing hats, and was always pulling them off. With my 8 month old now, I think I'm going to try something else.
Avatar n tn I have always used the one for babies - I can't remeber the name but it's in a pink bottle.
Avatar f tn I have now grown out of it with only the odd breakout. However, I still have extremely dry, sensitive skin. It has got to the point where it constantly hurts on my face and I cannot go 30 seconds without moisturiser on it. The moisturiser I am using no longer has the effect it once had, though it seems to be the only one that I can use without a great deal of discomfort. I can't even use sunscreen anymore because I cant find one that doesn't sting and burn.
Avatar f tn I am 33years old indian female, my skin is very much sensitive and dry(if not moisturised).I daily apply caladryl lotion, recently started using sebamed antiageing cream, also use spectraban sunscreen for sensitive skin.a week ago in a marriage ceremony my cousin accidentally rubbed onto my face holi colour(its a coloured dry powder containing chemicals used while playing holi a festival celebrated in India),I dont play holi, my skin is intolerant to chemicals.
359574 tn?1328364024 Hello, Usually the sunscreen is to be worn in the peak sun hours like 9 to 5 pm. But if your skin is sensitive to sun and you show solar urticaria, then you can wear a water based or a slight oil based sunscreen as heavy ones can clog your pores and cause acne. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar n tn I have never had it when I have not used sunscreen, but I have used sunscreen, been burned, and not had the reaction. I thought it may be a reaction to some ingredient in some sunscreens, but I'm not sure. I havnt used sunscreen on my back in about 4 years, and have not had the reaction. Also, when I was young, I was burned by some chemicals placed on a lawn by chemlawn, on my back. I don't know if it could somehow be associated. Any help would be much appreciated.
Avatar m tn Proceeding this increase I undertook a course of isotretinoin for acne and then had some mild scarring resurfaced using a laser. Knowing this would leave my skin sensitive to the sun I took to using sunscreen. It could just be a coincidence but I cannot help but be suspicious that either the isotretinoin or the suncreen is associated with the surge in new moles.
455126 tn?1212435798 At least we aren't getting snow like the west. I had my surgery in May and used sunscreen or moisturizer with sunscreen as soon as the incision healed. I also used a lotion called Glaxal Base which I found very good. Enjoy the nice weather.
Avatar n tn I can touch it (placing pressure on skin) but any friction and it's sensitive and uncomfortable. Now, I'm 29, not stressed (in fact, I meditate often), but I have knots in my back (from dancing/doing theatre) and quite possibly have carpal tunnel coming back to my right arm (I have knots in the muscles surrounding my elbows, and down my lower arm) - to me, I'm considering that I have a pinched nerve which is creating this sensitivity.
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!
393685 tn?1425816122 Perhaps others know. My skin become even more sensitive to the sun. That's a drag because some of my work is done outside, all day. I blame it on the med. I just bought another sunscreen that's an SPF80. BTW - I too use olive oil as a moisturizer and it works great. The Romans considered that a healing oil. Take care.
Avatar f tn I realized with all the meds I take I should be using a good sunscreen daily(i always do everyday). What would be the best sunscreen to use for sensitive skin? I had a photoallergic severe rash while on tetracycline years ago and had blisters and peeling ect.,since then I've been very nervous to go out in the sun while on meds. I now use a facter 50 sunscreen. Any new suggestions for me?
Avatar n tn Hi Derm, I have facial discoloration on the sides of my chin and cheeks, from using toothpaste for removal of pimples. Some spots on my face are burned from toothpaste, my skin is very sensitive and i wasn't aware of it, Can u please help. It is very noticeable! This discussion is related to <a href=''>discoloration of facial skin</a>.
Avatar f tn I cover my arms in the sun or use a sunscreen designed for Sun-Sensitive or Sun-Intolerant skin. Clarins make a good one as do La Roche-Posay. Eloise.
Avatar n tn Hi, It seems like she has both but right now her symptoms of whiteheads on the back is suggestive of acne. Whiteheads are the direct result of skin pores becoming clogged with sebum, a naturally occurring oil, and dead skin cells. In these conditions the naturally occurring largely commensual bacteria Propionibacterium acnes can cause inflammation, leading to inflammatory lesions , which results in redness and may result in scarring or hyperpigmentation.
