Hi
thanks for your query.
You have observed correctly to make perfect compliant.
It is perfectly to sun exposure. Which has produced photo sensitivity in you.
Your observation thst it not there earlier could be due ongoing reaction time.
I suggest you to go for long acting sun screen and moderate potent steroids creams at night.
Please adhere to full sleeves and you will feel better.
You may consult your nearest drmatologist for a better assessment and management.
I hope you understand my view
Have a good day
Prasad pvs

I recently had an excision for a superficial spreading melanoma, that did start growing veritically, from my upper right shoulder on my back. I still have stitches and am waiting for this pathology to determine if the margins are clear. Since the excision I have veins that are becoming darker blue under that right arm pit, shoulder and chest area. Even after lots of sunblock and reapplication I did get a sunburn, however the joint of my shoulder and armpit meet where one of these dark blue veins are I burnt around the vein but did not burn on nor about 1/4-1/2 an inch all around this vein. Is this normal or something I should contact the doctor who did my excision? I don t want to bother him if unnecessary, but has been a week since excision and have one more week till I go back to see him.

i am suffering from severe sunburns on my face and hands. Though I apply sunscreen while going out (SPF 50+) I still get sun burns. I am on treatment for curing sunburn. I was applying triglow cream mixed with a moisturizer during day time as well as night about 5 months back as a treatment for hyperpigmentation. I am worried if this sun burn is a side effect of triglow cream. How long will triglow cream have effect on my skin? When will i stop getting sunburns?

I was severely sunburned as a child, numerous times (42 yrs old now). I never had freckles on my back before the sunburns but developed lots of them over the years. Now I have four spots on my back that appeared as scaly patches, that bleed and ooze and are raised. They are also circled by redness. I have had them for about 5-6 months. Should this be checked for skin cancer?
