Why Do You Have Skin Irritation Rash?

Q:
Why do you have skin irritation rash?

A:
Skin irritation rash usually indicates sun allergy, especially if you have exposed to the sun a lot recently. Sun allergy is a term often used to describe a number of conditions in which an itchy red rash occurs on skin.

Mild cases of sun allergy may clear up without treatment. More severe cases may be treated with steroid creams or pills. People who have a severe sun allergy may need to take preventive measures and wear sun-protective clothing. Here are some ways of preventing sun allergy:

  • Limit your time in the sun.
  • Avoid sudden exposure to lots of sunlight.
  • Wear sunglasses and protective clothing.
  • Apply sunscreen frequently. At least SPF 30 is necessary.
