I thought that my issue with the sun was due to the medications I'm on - and Humera is one of them. When I go out and do something as simple as mow the lawn, my face gets bright, bright red (not burned) and then it usually takes a couple of hours to return back to normal color. I hadn't really given it much thought beyond thinking it was a bit strange. I, too, grew up in So. CA and never had a problem before taking these darn medications for my Crohns.........
Diagnosed 13+ years ago.
Been in remission for short periods of time but each time I come out of remission my disease seems to have spread. No longer isolated in my ileum, now from stomach down to rectum. Currently have C-Diff.
