Itchy skin in sunlight?

pepperanne, Dec 20, 1:57am
ok so this sounds weird but I have started to get really itchy skin when it is exposed to sunlight-esp my back.I have been to the doctors and had a skin scraping incase it was a fungal infection but results were clear.
Any idea of what this could be so I dont waste another $35 at the doctor for nothing!

I googled your thread title and goodness me, it's a common problem, eg, http://www.skincaretalk.com/other-skin-conditions/302-chronic-itchy-skin-after-sun-exposure-help.html

Could it be an allergy!
My SIL is allergic to the sun, and comes out in hives whenver exposed.

Could very well be Sun allergy or sun sensitivity, especially if you have been sun burnt in that area in the past year or so.It can take a few years to go away.Very important not to expose the skin to UV rays (always keep covered and I dont mean with sun screen I mean clothing!) I had it on the top of my shoulders, took 2 seasons to go away.
