polymorphic light eruption

by Tracie

I have suffered from this for many years and have found the only products that have helped is Hydrocortisone cream/mousse. I have used aloe gel but to no avail. I was wondering if you could recommend one of your products which would treat my condition?

Response to: Polymorphic Light Eruption
by: Nanette from Skin-Remedies.com

Hello Tracie,

For our website viewers I would first like to explain that polymorphic light eruption is a rash which usually appears as red, tiny bumps or slightly raised patches of skin caused by sun exposure in certain people who have developed sensitivity to sunlight. This certainly can be devastating when attempting to engage in outdoor activity. I'm so glad that you are seeking out natural alternatives to hydrocortisone creams. This type of drug carries so many potential side effects. These side effects include: thinning and discoloration of the skin (hypo or hyper pigmentation), easy bruising, permanent dilation of certain blood vessels, burn marks on skin, itchiness, perioral dermatitis, liver and kidney damage and a weakened immune system. Not only this, but when you stop using steroid creams this almost always produces what is known as a "Rebound Effect" or "Rebound Phenomenon". These terms refer to the tendency of some medications, when discontinued suddenly, to cause the return of the symptoms it relieved either in the same area or another area. Unfortunately, many times the symptoms return stronger than they were before treatment first began.

I would highly recommend first cleansing only with our All Over Face & Body Wash as this will help to restore the proper pH of your skin. Neck apply our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream for the body area and our Face & Neck TheraCream for the facial area twice daily and it would also be recommended to apply them just before heading out into the sunshine. I would further suggest finding a very natural sunscreen that contains a combination of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (minerals) as these will provide a physical barrier to the skin rather than a chemical (and often toxic) barrier and applying this on top of our cream before heading outside.

Please keep me posted on your progress Tracie.

Warm Regards,
