    Many lupies are sun sensitive. The UVA and UVB rays trigger the reaction. Watch out for flourescent lights too.....they emit the rays too. Have you felt weird after a trip to the mall? We call that mall fog.....reaction to all the flourescent lights. So stay out of the sun....wear a hat and long sleeves.

    hi stephani38 welcome to the message board! hope you can find the support & strength that i have found here! remember we are just patients and only offer our opinions - dx is best left for the doctors ... but we can try help you understand from our patient point of view and support you thru no matter what!

    sorry just a few questions:
    i am assuming you are lupus positive?
    do you get rashes or is this new?
    is there any 'marks' or just the sensation?

    we must all be weary of the sun (and flourescents) Of course we are all unique and individual but majority of lupians are as heidi mentioned 'photo- sensitive' and i would reccomend bringing this symptom up with your doctor!

    my opinion is that prevention is better than cure - sunscreen, hat, long sleeve etc
    BUT there are some lupians who will swear they feel better sitting in the sun - individuals we all are! best to see you own reactions and take preventions from there ... i too love the sun but am still trying to access to own tolerances and find prevention to be my best choice (long sleeves, short periods etc)

    Hang tight
    A

    Probably Sunburn, is there some reason you think it is something else?
