I just thought I'd post with this ,in case anyone is interested,I went on Hols for 2 weeks to spain,and was extremely worried about my skin having a horrible reaction to the sun,I must add it this point pre-imuran I had what I'd call a scandinavian skin type,tanned easily and did not burn,quickly I was and am a real sun lover,I think a bit of sunshine,gennerallyimproves my health and sense of well being
so as I said I was very nervous, about it having heard some people on hear having bad reactions, I slapped on the factor 50+ for kids,avioded the sun between noon and 4ish,and had no problems I even came back with a lovely tan,and I feel much better I do have quite a few moles so I think I'll try and go to a mole clinic just to have them checked,as it scarily lists skin cancers as a common side effect of imuran !
