Sunscreen Allergy

Wondering if it's possible to have an allergic reaction to sunscreen? Although uncommon, if you have sensitive skin, some ingredients in sunscreen may cause a skin reaction. Additionally, individuals with atopic eczema, asthma, or hay fever may be more at risk of allergies to ingredients in chemical sunscreens. Signs and symptoms of a sunscreen allergy are hives, red or raised welts, and itchy skin. However, depending on the condition of your skin, these symptoms may vary. If you are worried about sunscreen allergies, it's important to know your triggers. For example, you may want to avoid fragrances, dyes, and certain active ingredients that can trigger an unwanted skin reaction. It's also a good idea to patch-test new products before applying them to your skin. Of course, when in doubt, consult your dermatologist to help you identify potential ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. They can also help guide you to products that would be safe for your skin.
