Stumped with Sun Sensitivity

For about 2 years I've had increasing sun sensitivity.  Now, within 7 min. my neck, head and hands turn bumps or hives...just red.  Once indoors, or covered up, redness subsides within 10 min.  My ANA has been elevated for a few years.   But I am on blood pressure meds and one doc. says that it looks like that is what's elevating my ANA.  I am also sensitive to EMF's.

  • Check whether your skin product/ sun screen is contributing to the problem. I found perfume in these creams was the problem interacting with sun.

  • Hi getbetter, do you currently have a diagnosis of lupus?
