    Ehlers Denlos and sunburn

    Does anyone have any experience of Ehlers Denlos making sunburn worse? My mother and I have it, but none on my siblings do. While the entirety of my family has pretty pale skin, everyone can tan except my mother and I. Even with SPF 100, reapplications every half hour, and shade, we have gotten sunburned really badly, to the point of blistering before. I

    know that our skin is prone to scars and bruises. So what about burns?

    For what it's worth, I have EDS and I tan reasonably well. It's important to keep in mind that EDS is a syndrome that relates back to collagen deficiency, with many variants in the stew, including many different types of collagen.
