View Full Version : Anyone have probs with fluorescents?

12-07-2009, 10:31 AM
I get a malar rash on my nose and cheeks as well as my chest and arms. I am VERY photosensitive to the sun and fluorescent lights. My rheumy recommended I get at least a 25spf daily face lotion. So I went out and bought spf30 face lotion by Neutrogena and im STILL getting rashes!! Does anyone else have this severe photosensitive problem and what can we do?? I am still getting rashes every month as I mentioned in my other recent post...i dont know what to do anymore :/

Hi Mommyof1,
I am super photosensitive too. It started last spring... small signs of it before that. But now, I have lesions on my face and arms. Malar rash on cheeks and nose, if I wear a v neck shirt, I get red.... Flourescent lights in stores are the worst.. like grocery stores.. I always get a terrible headache from the lights. I wear spf 70 if I am going to be outside or if I am going somewhere I know the lights will be flourescent... Which is pretty much everywhere now with the new pc push to use them all the time. I haven't found a trick for getting rid of the rashes yet. Let me know if anything works for you!!
God bless,
