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?
