Sun or Pollen Allergies ??

Postby AnnaB on Thu Apr 16, 2009 11:06 pm

Since the first signs of spring broke my son has been suffering with really bad eczema flares. He had Ige blood tests last summer which showed grass and tree pollen to be an issue to him. I'd put the flares down to that. But the hosptal have just suggested he looks like he is allergic to sun light - photo agrevated eczema!

How do I keep a 4 year old out of the sun??

Does anyone have any tips on dealing with a sun allergy?

Hi my son doesn't react well to the sun either. There are lots of clothes that you can buy now that are lightweight and have an SPF rating built into them. I've found that they've really helped with allowing my son to be outside in the sunshine.
