Dozens of prescription and over-the-counter medications can cause your skin to be extra-sensitive to the sun. Not everyone has a reaction, but if you do, it can range from mild redness to severe blistering.
According to WebMD, many medications can cause sun-sensitivity, including certain medications in these categories:
- Benzoyl peroxide
The bottom line — if you are taking medications, be aware that you may be more sensitive to the sun. If you notice a reaction, get out of the sun and see your health coach.
