How to Treat Polymorphic Light Eruption?

Medical Treatment:
  • No cure
  • Avoid the sun especially 11 am to 3 pm
  • Wear protective clothing when outdoors
  • Apply sunscreens to help prevent the rash from developing - use SPF 30 or above with a good UVA rating
  • Corticosteroid (steroid) cream or ointment can prescribe by your GP; its only applied when the rash appears
  • Sometimes desensitization or UV treatment is possible to increase the resistance of your skin to the sun
  • You should see a hospital dermatology department 3 times a week for 4 to 6 weeks in the spring
  • If you need treatment with vitamin D supplements, your GP may give you more advice
