Get blisters when you’re out in the sun?

By  |  2 Comments
Some people develop skin rashes when they are out in the sun.Typically, this causes red bumps or blisters that become itchy and start to burn. It can also result in chills, headache, and nausea.

This is a fairly common condition for those who seek tropical vacations during winter.  The skin blisters can also be caused by certain medications (antibiotics, blood pressure medications) and some lotions which contain alpha or beta hydroxy acids or retinoids from vitamin A

How to avoid it?
You can prevent these skin rashes easily. Do these:

  • Wear protective clothing
  • Use a good quality sunscreen when you’re out in the sun. 
  • Stay way from the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m

If you still end up developing those rashes, see your doctor for prescription creams so that you can heal fast.

    When I was a young adult (lol, wayyyy back when) I blistered VERY badly. Today I do not tan in those spots! I cannot stress enough the importance of sunscreen and some covering up!

    Sheila, same here. Would get all rosy red. Not any more though. In fact, because I was in sales/marketing, I had to travel quite a bit and often used a bike. The next day, every one would know what neckline I had worn the previous day – and which footwear from the tan marks. I am immune now 😀
