well, if this is the case, i dont know if i want to even start to take imuran.
i love the sun and the beach and being outside and i wont stop. i like to tan.
i swim in the ocean and pools. i canNOT not go in the sun.
and i dont want to hear any 'its bad for you' or 'skin cancer' etc warnings.
im not staying out of the sun. so im not sure what to do now.
i dont want pins n needles and blotchy skin or alligator skin etc...
anyone on imuran that has had no side effects while in the sun or is it one of those side effects that is always there???
