Photosensitivity is a condition of extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun and other light sources. Extended exposure to the sun may develop the risk of photosensitivity. People with this condition have an immunological response to sunlight. Photosensitivity can vary from person to person depending on the amount of exposure. This sun sensitivity can lead to severe skin rashes and burns even with limited exposure to the sun. It is also known as sun allergy. People who have Photosensitivity are susceptible to develop skin cancer or other types of skin diseases.
Chemicals induced into our body can cause the skin to be sun sensitivity. There are two types of chemical photosensitivity
a) Photoallergic Photosensitivity: This photosensitivity generates when an individual has side effects from various medications. Chemicals in beauty products and sunscreen lotions will trigger the photosensitivity. It only takes a few days or weeks to develop burn r rash after exposing to the sun. This photoallergic reaction causes redness, blisters, scaling, and itching.
b) Phototoxic Photosensitivity: When a new chemical in the body reacts with the UV rays then Phototoxic Photosensitivity occurs. People with this condition can develop severe sunburn in a short amount of time after ingesting medications such as tetracycline or doxycycline after exposure to sunlight. A mixture of drugs and UV rays can trigger severe sunburn. Phototoxic results in the redness, inflammation, and discoloration in areas of the skin exposed to the sun.
An abnormal reaction between a reactive compound and sunlight can cause the photosensitivity. Longwave UVA radiation is the most common radiation that people tend to be allergic. UVA light can penetrate deeply into the skin and causes damage to the surface.
Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions can be the cause of photosensitivity in the people. Such as,
Lupus: It attacks connective tissues in the skin, such that person with this condition tends to be more sensitive towards sun exposure and as they can develop purple spots, lumps or red patches.
Polymorphous Light Eruption: People with this condition can develop rashes when exposed to the sun. Increase in UV tolerance makes the symptoms appear less often. Women are more likely to improve this condition than men.
Actinic Prurigo: People with actinic prurigo develop red bumps on the skin when exposed to the sun. These red bumps worsen into scaly patches.
