My cheekbones get bright red patches, and somewhat across the bridge of my nose, and the rest of my skin
gets red, and burns easily. The worst part is that I also get systemic reactions to the sun
, and after minimal exposure seem to have joint pains for several days, fatigue, feverish feeling, digestive problems, and eye problems.
This seems to me to be more of an autoimmune issue, which according to the literature is often triggered by sun exposure....see articles on Lupus, etc.
