I hope everyone is doing ok today.
I've never had sun sensitivity before, except with a migraine. Actually, I get very depressed without it. But in the last two days my tolerance for the sun has been bad and I find myself very tired and having headaches and my vision bad. Today, I'm really struck bad. I closed all the shades but its not enough and I took time to write this so I could find out if I'm developing allergy to sun. I started some new creams for vitiligo yesterday--protopic-- an immunosuppresant cream and cli. acetonimide--a steroid cream, but I was having problems before this. I've been complaining about my vision, trouble focusing, staying in focus and the eye doc just tells me because I pass the test and don't have tunnel or double vision that I'm ok, probably just tired. The sun makes this focusing problem much worse. I'm putting blankets over all the windows which have drapes and shades but are not enough. I live in the deep south and it's about 105 out and if you go out in the sun for 5 minutes it's like several hours. Can someone tell me if sun allergy causes shortness of breath, headaches, bad nausea, eye photosensitivity like with migraine?
I'd say this was an off and on migraine but it goes away when the sun goes down. I don't have any rash, though the vitiligo areas are burning and one part slowly turning a little blue and cold--dermatologiest saw and is rechecking and stuff. I did get a rough patch on cheek after being out in sun that is dark pigment but more a gray black than tan, and tough, but it seems like its almost gone. My son has a patch like that on his cheek too, but his is red and waxes and wanes. Is this sun allergy? I don't get rash.
Gotta go throw up, this room has too much light.
