What is drug-induced photosensitivity? Drug-induced photosensitivity occurs when certain photosensitising medications cause unexpected sunburn or dermatitis (a dry, bumpy or blistering rash) on sun-exposed skin (face, neck, arms, backs of hands and often lower legs and feet). The rash may or may not be itchy.

Sun-sensitive or photosensitive drugs are drugs that cause a moderate to severe skin reaction that is similar to a bad sunburn when exposed to the sun (UV rays), usually the forehead, nose, hands, arms, and lips. Many common medications cause this reaction in some people.

Drug-induced sun sensitivity occurs when chemicals in medications are exposed to sunlight, producing negative skin reactions. Reactions can result from both oral ingestion of a drug or from compounds that are using topically. If you’re on medications that increase photosensitivity, be diligent in protecting yourself when outside.

A chemical or drug that causes photosensitivity is a photosensitiser. A phototoxic reaction to a photosensitiser results in an exaggerated sunburn reaction and no immune reaction is involved. A photoallergic reaction to a photosensitiser results in photodermatitis and is due to delayed hypersensitivity reaction.

Phototoxic photosensitivity: People who are phototoxic develop a severe sunburn in a short amount of time after ingesting various prescription medications like tetracycline or doxycycline and spending time in the sun. The mix of these prescription medications and ultraviolet light is the trigger for the extreme sunburn (phototoxicity).
