  • Hi Hester

    Did your Rheumy explain about sun-sensitivity? I also burn very quickly and easily and I'm very UV sensitive. Catching the sun will make the inflammation worse in the body so it's best to avoid it by covering up, using at least factor 30 sun block (even on cloudy days) and staying in the shade during the hottest part of the day. There is more info on Lupus UK and other sites:

    Take care and be gentle on yourself xx
