Understanding Sun Allergies

Are you experiencing unusual symptoms after spending time in the sun? You may be one of the many individuals who have a sun allergy. While most people enjoy basking in the warm rays of the sun, others may find themselves dealing with uncomfortable and sometimes severe allergic reactions. Understanding the signs and symptoms of a sun allergy is essential for proper diagnosis and management.

Sun allergies, also known as photosensitivity or photodermatitis, occur when your immune system reacts abnormally to sunlight. This reaction can cause various skin changes and systemic symptoms that can range from mild to severe. It’s important to note that having a sun allergy doesn’t mean you’re allergic to the sun itself, but rather certain components of sunlight trigger an immune response in your body.
