    Plaquenil sun allergy


    It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes, which transmit the parasites that cause the infection, usually in tropical and subtropical parts of the world.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is one of the safest drugs in medicine. Serious side effects are rare & routine blood tests are not required. Allergy new skin rashes is unusual but it means ruling our future use. Commoner, usually mild, side effects are indigestion, ‘gurgly tummy’, diarrhoea & headache. Have your blood work checked if you are on hydroxychloroquine for a long time. Talk with your doctor. Be careful if you have G6PD deficiency. Anemia may happen. This medicine may make you sunburn more easily. Use care if you will be in the sun. Tell your doctor if you sunburn easily while taking this drug. I was told that Plaquenil can increase your skin's reaction to the sun. All I was told is to make sure I wear sunscreen all the time when I go out because I could burn more easily.

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.

  5. This is pretty different, but I started plaquenil and went to Hawaii for a wedding three weeks later. After the first day at the beach, I started getting a rash. Started small, but ended being an extreme sun triggered allergy to plaquenil that covered most of my body. It's been 4 months and it's still tapering off.

    Once we determined that Plaquenil was worsening my psorasis to affect my nails and tendon inserts, I came off it for good. Skin rashes occasionally develop and hydroxychloroquine may make you more sensitive to the sun, so it is advisable to use the usual precautions of sunscreens and a hat if you are in the sun. My ophthalmologist says Plaquenil treats the Sjogrens as well. My life before Plaquenil.be you need to go back on the Plaquenil. I remember having the sun sensitivity when not on Plaquenil; for me the sun allergy is the lupus thing. Solar urticaria, also known as sun allergy, is a rare allergy to sunlight that causes hives to form on skin that’s exposed to the sun. The itchy, reddish spots or welts usually appear within.
