light sensitvity

I went to the doctors the other day to pick up a prescription and my GP went mental on me for not wearing sunblock, I did go to the surgery after getting birthday cards for my mother but by the time I got there my face felt as though it had acid being poured over it and it had come up in a purple tinged rash across my cheeks and nose. My GP had a go at me as I was supposedly should have been wearing complete sunblock and he has urgently referred me to Rhuematology any ideas why

  • Thanks all the only laughable thing about this is the wearing of sunblock in our weather lol but if it stops the rash and the scid feeling on my face I suppose I will have to grin and wear it lol will let you know what happens when it happens thank you all

  • Photosensitivity is a symptom of Lupus as the others have said.

    Butterfly54 - how did you get a false positive for Lupus?
