Do you experience extreme itching after sun exposure? It’s one of the symptoms I started having few years before I was recently diagnosed. I thought I developed allergy to the UV rays. It became hard to enjoy the sun. Gradually I started protecting myself with lots of sun screen and making sure I sit in the shade when I’m in a park or the beach. When I was diagnosed few months back, the doctor told me that I should avoid the sun. Now I wear long sleeves and no shorts when outside. I also make sure I’m protected from the sun when driving as my left arm gets most of the sun and the itching will last for days :(. Summer is here and I’m going to the Mediterranean, where I’m originally from, for vacation. It’s very hot there and I’m worried sick! I’m thinking about buying UV clothing but the stuff is super expensive!!
My dermatologist said I should only use zinc based sun blocks as regular sun screens are heavy on the liver... that stuff makes me sweat like crazy and I hate it... To make a long story short, it all sucks and I was wondering if any of you are experiencing the same issue, and if yes, what solutions, if any, have you tried to make your life outdoors easier.
Thank you in advance.
