Cool Sun Sensitivity

I suffered from clinical depression for 17 years, trying many drugs/alternative therapies. Eventually--and after 3 different homeopaths--we found a homeopathic remedy (Naturm Muriaticum) that is effective against my symptoms. I take an LM potency whenever the symptoms return, which is about once a week or so.

My problem is: I'm very senstive to light and live in Phoenix AZ. I need to stay in doors all year. If I go for an extended drive/road trip and am in the car for more than about 1 hour, my homeopathic remedy is antidoted, and I need to redose and wait for it to become effective again, which takes a day or two.

For years I was satisified to remain indoors because, with clinical depression, I didn't have the energy to go anywhere. Now I want to get outside but can't. Beside using a Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 combo, does anyone know of a treatment for light sensitivity? I'd like to take any ideas to my naturopath and try them.

We've considered changing my homeopathic remedy, but my homeopath and I have decided against it for reasons that are too long to go into just now.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Sun Sensitivity

Are you on any other medications that can might be making you sun sensitive? Birth control can cause sun sensitivity. Would wearing a sunscreen daily help you at all?

Re: Sun Sensitivity

I use sunscreen on my face and generally am covered up in the winter...and I still cannot go out in the sun. Being male, I don't take birth control medications.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Re: Sun Sensitivity

Have you been checked out for photosensitivity related disorders? It would be a good idea to do so. There are UV protecting clothes out there, that is worth looking into.
