Can you be allergic to sun? Polymorphous light eruption and other forms of sun allergy | Ask Doctor Anne

Sun poisoning, sun allergy, polymorphous light eruption – these are only a few names for a subgroup of dermatologic conditions making it almost impossible to go out and enjoy the sun.

Every year when I was first exposed to the sun for a longer period of time, went on holiday, went on a hike, basically exposed skin that had been protected from direct sunlight before, my neck and décolleté, sometimes even my upper arms and…
