Group Description

Established April 2006, we are a support group for people with sun & light sensitivities. Sun sensitivity reaction may occur after a very short amount of exposure time. Some people experience an immediate reaction & others react after a delay. Sun sensitivity can be due to a primary medical condition, or side effect from medication, or reaction to product ingredients. Other terms for sun sensitivity include: photoreaction, photoallergic, photosensitivity, phototoxic. Diagnoses include solar urticaria, lupus, porphyria, sun hives, polymorphic light eruption, sun allergy, & other light reactive conditions. We share our day-to-day experiences & ways of living with sun sensitivity. We discuss coping techniques such as sunscreens, clothing, & medical interventions. sun1 is a place to feel comfortable exchanging ideas, discussing concerns, & asking questions.

Moderators:Gail(owner), Polly, & Wendi
