    Default If I Use Sunblock, Long Sleeves and a Hat, Will I still Flare?

    Hi All!

    I was told by my rheumy to use sunblock with an SPF 50+. I also bought SunGuard UPA Clothing Protection and I plan to buy some lightweight long-sleeve tunics or cardigans along with a wide-brim hat. So, with all that in place, will I be able to go out in the middle of the day to go to the grocery store or say to walk around town or go sightseeing, or will I still be banned to the indoors? In other words, how effective are these measures against lupus flares triggered by the sun?

    OBTW, bought Neutrogena Pure & Free Liquid Daily Sunblock SPF 5O for my face and Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70
    with helioplex for other exposed body parts. Is this good stuff?

    Thanks in advance!
