Sun allergy and pimples are closely related. In fact, the appearance of white pimples and the typical skin rash can turn out to be a clear symptom of what is colloquially called allergy pimples or polymorphic light eruption, its most common form.
What are sun allergy pimples like?
First of all, it is important to distinguish whether the pimples that have appeared are caused by allergies to the sun or are another type of pimples that may have appeared on your skin caused by another type of pathology.
If you have been exposed to the sun, your skin has reddened and pimples and rashes, papules and itchy eruptions have appeared quickly -instantly or progressively over the 12 hours after exposure-, then you possibly have sun allergy.
These lesions will only appear on the parts of your skin that have been exposed to the sun, in no case where they were not. In case you are not sure what sun allergy pimples are like, you can consults your healthcare practitioner.
How to remove pimples in this situation?
The first thing to do is prevent; that is, prevent the appearance of sun allergy and the pimples that are a consequence of it. For this, it is advisable to moderate your sun exposure, both in relation to the minutes you spend sunbathing and also to the hours during which you do it, avoiding the phases of the day during which the sun ‘stings’ the strongest.
Apart from this, it is essential to use a good sunscreen and it is highly recommended that you use an oral sunscreen of quality, a food supplement such as Oliovita Protect that not only protects your skin from the sun but also nourishes, hydrates and repairs it, avoiding the appearance of untimely pimples due to sun allergy.
Treatments to remove pimples
If you have continued reading the post up to this point, it is probably because you have not taken enough care and you have half your body full of pimples due to sun allergy. Don’t worry, your problem has a solution.
If you have not taken the appropriate prevention measures and pimples have appeared on your skin –particularly on the neckline, neck, shoulders and legs-, you can opt for two types of treatment: natural or antihistamines.
The natural treatment combines the use of essential oils with natural soaps specifically formulated to combat skin dryness. It is also highly recommended to enhance its repairing effects with food supplements that repair and nourish your skin, such as Oliovita Protect .
The other solution is the use of antihistamines, always under the supervision of a qualified professional, if it can be a dermatologist.
In both cases, if we want to make pimples due to sun allergy disappear as quickly as possible, regardless of the type of treatment we opt for, in no case should we expose the affected areas to sunlight again. The use of cotton clothing that completely covers the areas of the skin where the pimples are found is recommended.
But the most important thing is to prevent before cure, so during the months of more sun exposure, make sure to protect your skin from the inside.
