Skin rashes caused by sun

Common Questions and Answers about Skin rashes caused by sun


Avatar n tn Hi Your rash could be caused directly or indirectly by stress, allergic reactions (hives) heat or sun exposure, bacterial, viral or fungal infections, underlying medical illness or medications. Skin rashes are diagnosed clinically based on the history and appearance of the rash. You should consult a dermatologist so that he finds the exact cause and gives you medications to treat the underlying cause.
2090601 tn?1334518662 Been itching like mad! Had a week in the sun on vacation, wonder if the sun caused this insane itch?
Avatar n tn 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!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn He perscribed a cortisone cream which i should apply for 4 to 5 days a few times a day. He said the rash was caused by an allergic reaction to the sun. I am on vacation in a sunny climate now but usually i am in a cold climate for my studies. Could this be an allergy for the sun? And will i be able to go in the sun after i am finnished using this cream? Or will i get the same allergic reaction again?
Avatar f tn Hello, It looks like sunburns as sunburns not only cause skin rashes and blisters on skin but may cause swollen eyes, lips and face as well. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. You can take some OTC oral antihistamine medications like Benadryl or Claritin and see if it helps. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid.
Avatar n tn Now last two days i have a fever. It may be caused by BUG ? We have a bed bug problem in house. Generally the rashes disappearing two or three days.
Avatar m tn As of now after three weeks of exposure, I dont have any symptoms on genital, thigh, buttocks and neck. But in my mouth below my lower teeth on the skin,I had small dot(1mm), caused very little pain for 1 day and gone.. I had dry cough for 2weeks.. Not continuous dry cough but when smoke is around it will start.. One more thing, I had slight yellowish coloured urine in the morning.. My questions are 1) does this symptom relate to herpes or warts? what do you make of this symptom?
Avatar n tn All of a sudden the skin on my upper back was very dry and irritated, there were a few pimple like bumps but they didn't cause any pain or discomfort. the skin did not itch. I then noticed what looks like possibly light moles, sun spots or birth marks appear on my neck in 3 spots, also there is a rash on my neck that isn't painful or irritated, looks like a razor burn (although I havent shaved and there isnt hair in this area).
Avatar n tn Could this tingling sensation have been caused by my initial anxiety or stress about contracting polio? I was VERY anxious about polio. I think I handle stress well (I have a stressful job) but worry about the most ridiculous 'health issues' (like polio for instance when I had nothing to worry about since I was vaccinated as a child). The more I research this tingling sensation on the internet the more over-wrought I become, imagining the worst.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Could it be caused by a new med I am taking? (Neurontin) or addition of Vitamin D (1800mg for Arthritis). I have bumpy rash that itches horribly where ever the sun touches me.
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms and pictures, it looks like tinea versicolor. Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines.
Avatar n tn I was treated for Hep C successfully 15 years ago - unfortunately, I started drinking again and regularly. I have now awakened to non-itchy rashes on my stomach, back, inner arms and legs. The rash goes away by afternoon but could return worse in the morning or not at all. More often than not, I wake up with a rash. The dermatologist said this could only be the result of an infection or an allergy. I did not disclose my drinking behavior.
1025521 tn?1252511328 Hello, It can be due to tinea versicolor. Tinea versicolor is caused by a fungus that lives in the skin of almost all adults. Factors that can cause the fungus to become more visible include high humidity and immune or hormone abnormalities. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine, ketaconazole and clotrimazole.
80575 tn?1207135964 I started to develop a serious rash around week 5 or 6 and was off the VX by about week 8 (after going on prednisone, off prednisone and then back on). By the time I stopped the VX, I had developed such a nasty allergic reaction to the drug, my body just continued to behave as if I was till taking it (even though it has a short half life and is out of your system within a few days). The rash continued and got worse as time rolled on.
1477811 tn?1321390053 For those especially sensitive, a photosensitive reaction may also be triggered by indirect sun exposure, such as light reflected off pavement. Protect Yourself Although the skin burns or rashes characteristic of photosensitivity can cause pain, itching and misery, combination therapy for Hepatitis C needn’t keep you confined indoors (unless advised by a physician or pharmacist).
Avatar m tn Really appreciate er response mate. My rashes are slowly responding to the drugs prescribed by my doctor (which is a good thing) am 10 days into medication & already I can notice a massive improvement. The spots/Rashes are fast disappearing (they are getting smaller & smaller, ultimately disappearing completely) I just hope they don't come back, soon i will be able to move around in shorts & sleeveless.
Avatar f tn Fatigue that is so extreme, BP that falls as low as 70/35 and causes me to pass out, recurring pancreatitis, headaches, permanent swollen glands in throat and axilla, itchy skin that rashes up at will, and a beautiful Mediterranean sun tan without the holiday. Nausea when eating, loss of hearing in one ear and blurry vision also add to the pot pourri of symptoms. I have had every specialty look at specific areas except Endocrinologist and Rheumatologist. ANA negative, Ca 19.
2059648 tn?1439770265 I still slather my hands and tops of my feet with sunscreen. Our skin during tx tends towards being very dry and rashes are common. Direct sun contact will only exacerbate the problem. Use moisturizer and stay hydrated. Hope that helps.

Avatar m tn to reduce scarring and keloids; to heal surgical wounds caused by removing skin for skin grafts; to reduce redness due to acne; and to soften dry cuticles and promote healthy nails. Emu oil is also used topically athlete's foot; diaper rash; canker sores; chapped lips; poor circulation; and skin conditions, including cancer, dry skin, dandruff, eczema, psoriasis, wrinkles or age spots. It is also used to protect skin from sun damage and to promote more youthful looking skin.
Avatar n tn Hello, Lamictal has shown skin adverse effects in the form of contact dermatitis,dry skin and increased sweating.So if the skin biopsy has shown the skin rashes in your case to be due to lamictal then its witdrawl can help you with the symptoms.You can also apply calamine lotion on the skin as it will help in soothing the skin. The half life of a drug means that the time it takes for a substance (drug, radioactive nuclide, or other) to lose half of its pharmacologic properties.

Avatar n tn Since my fibro symptoms started years ago, i've had a lot of rashes,like hive and very sensitive to heat skin. I thought it was allergy to food but it got worse and then I thought it was from one of the medications. I was on several muscle relaxants, pain killers, sleeping pills that I had no idea which caused the symptom. I tried to drink lots of water in hope that it'd dilute the toxins but didn't help much.
999891 tn?1407279676 I will have to think on it..sometimes it's all in the words you google! I could definitely see if being caused by a flare up of nerve issues...
