Sun allergy is a term often used to describe a number of conditions in which an itchy red rash occurs on skin that has been exposed to sunlight. The most common form of sun allergy is sunburn. Among other dermatosis cased by sun are polymorphic light eruption, frekles, medicine induced photosensitivity etc.
Sun induced dermatoses typically occur on the sun exposed parts of the body. At times, the amount of sun exposure is not very important in causation of sun induced skin problems. The sensitivity towards sun may be increased by intake of certain medicines, most common being painkillers.
Mild cases of sun allergy may clear up without treatment. More-severe cases require treatment. People who have a severe sun allergy may need to take preventive measures and wear sun-protective clothing.
