I'm just wondering what the different levels of sensitivity are for others? I used to be able to (when I started getting ill 7years ago) be out for a couple hours a day, then it went to maybe an hour, then a half hour. NOW? I am lucky if 10 mins doesn't do me in. It's HORRIBLE! Especially being in Florida. I was out there for about 10 mins on Saturday LATE afternoon, as in after 5 pm, and my face is still a mess. I spent last night scratching all night, even with benadryl, from the itching. My appt with the Rheumy is slooooowly coming on July 1. Only waited a YEAR for this ONE appt. Very frustrated today, and of course exhausted from several nights of lack of sleep.
So how long can you be exposed to the sun without melting?
