March 27, 2009, Newsletter Issue #185: Understanding Photosensitivity

Tip of the Week

Photosensitizing agents include anything that can increase your sensitivity to ultraviolet light. There are medications, allergies, diseases, creams, lotions, and other cosmetics that can act as a photosensitizing agent. Using any of these products that has a photosensitizing agent may hurt you or damage your skin in conjunction with UV light emitters. This could be from the sun or tanning beds.

Photosensitizing agents increase your risk of burning when exposed to ultraviolet light. If you are concerned that some of your medications could contain a photosensitizing agent, contact your doctor and avoid tanning or being out in the sun too long.
