I think I'm allergic to the sun

Or sun block, or face scrub, or lotion, or a combination of things but since the beginning of June I've been getting periodic days where my face is having an allergic reaction, red bumps, rashy red streaks... It looks like a bad sunburn. I don't get it! But if it is the sun I'm screwed. I work outside. How in the world am I going to be able to avoid it? I wear sunblock hats, sunglasses. What more do you want?

I don't know but I hate how sensitive my skin is.

I'll figure it out! Go Wednesday!

I'm sensitive to the ingredient avobenzone that is in a lot of sunscreens. Face, arms and chest become itchy for a few weeks, little bumps appear and skin gets an odd texture. I now use sunscreens with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide. The Environmental Working Group website has a list of the best ones to try:
Good luck :)
