The UV effect
Sun allergy can be caused when UV light alters a substance in the skin. The immune system then reacts to this substance and leads the skin to become inflamed.
It’s heating up
Polymorphic light eruption is often confused with prickly heat. The main difference with a sun rash is that the skin hardens and desensitises.
Pale and interesting
While women with fair skin are more prone to sun rashes, people with darker skin and even children can be affected. The best way to prevent sun allergy is to apply a high factor sunscreen such as NIVEA SUN Protect & Sensitive Sun Lotion SPF 50.
It’s in your DNA
Polymorphic light eruption can be hereditary. As there is no known cure, the best treatment method is prevention. The best sunscreen for sensitive skin, like NIVEA Protect & Sensitive Sun Lotion helps to protect the skin. Some doctors offer a therapy to treat polymorphic light eruption.
