Has anyone’s skin got worse when they are on holiday in the sun?
Mine gets itchy and I can’t sit in the sun as it became sore even though I have sun cream on.
It isn’t the sun cream as I always stick to the same product especially for sensitive skin.

When I go on holidays my psoriasis usually tends to get worse the first few days of sitting in the sun all day gets extremely red but afterwards it starts to clear up and I can see a change.

My arms tend to be clear of psoriasis in the winter but lo and behold when I go out into the sun they become red, hot and then psoriasis begins to develop. My dermatology nurse told me that over the years my psoriasis has probably become photosensitive.

My psoriasis has been really quite good over the winter and I was really looking forward to a summer of shorts - alas as soon as temp rose so did my psoriasis, and this week in particular has been itchy so had to take more anti histamines

My experience has always been that getting sun on my skin and swimming in the sea improved my psoriasis dramatically and greatly. But always avoid burninging your skin - that seems to have a potential to trigger psoriasis.
