Hello...I haven't posted before but I would like to ask a question for a dear friend of mine who has IPF.
He is having trouble being prescribed a high factor sun protection cream from his GP. His GP has prescribed one called Sun Sense but it's only for the face although my friend does use it on his arms etc. It's proving hard to get it this time of year. I can't understand why he can't be prescribed a high factor spray for his arms too. All the pharmacies seem to be out of stock of it. I wanted to ask anyone who is on Pirfenidone do you get your high factor sun protection on prescription or do you have to buy it yourself? Which brand does your GP prescribe if you are prescribed it? My friend has been told he has to put the sun cream on even at this time of year so it will be expensive if he has to buy it himself. He's on benefits as he can't work so any help or advice you can give would be much appreciated. Thank you everyone.
