How to Treat Solar Rash?

Solar rash is a benign reaction from the sun that is mainly due to UVA radiation and is most often accompanied by redness, itching and slight tingling.

It affects mainly women aged 15-35, and appears after the first days of sun exposure in spring and summer, and relapses almost every year, usually with more severe symptoms.

Solar rash only occurs in areas exposed to the sun, such as the neckline, shoulders, arms and upper arms. It does not offend the person.

Sun rashes leave in 8 to 10 days and leave no trace, as long as you are careful.

To combat itching and irritation you can ask your Pharmacist to recommend some anti-inflammatory cream that you will use morning and evening.

Caution!
The spots where the rashes have appeared, and until they disappear, should be covered with clothing when you go out into the sun again.

Sunlight can worsen their condition, regardless of the treatment you take.

Because your skin is sensitive to the sun, you should wear a sunscreen with a very high protection index (50+) every time you go out in the sun, not just on the beach.

Your Pharmacist may also recommend some supplements with carotenoids, vitamins A, E, flavonoids or even antioxidant enzymes to avoid any relapses.
