Rashes from Sunscreen
Two of my children get a rash from sunscreen. They’re going away to summer camp and I’m worried that they’ll be unprotected in the summer sun. For some reason, they seem to be able to handle Neutrogena 30 but get a terrible rash from Neutrogena 45. What could be the difference between 30 and 45? What does the higher number do that creates this allergy?
Skin reaction to sunscreen products is common and could affect 15 to 20 percent of individuals that use them. Allergic reactions that are based on the immune system function are less common. Many skin rashes such as photoallergic contact dermatitis, allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, contact urticaria, acneiform eruptions, and polymorphic light eruption (just to mention a few) are associated with using sun block products.
