Skin may break out with dermatitis, a rash with in- flamed skin; eczema, which is reddish skin with crusting and scaling; blisters and postules, which are pus-filled pimples. Some foods, medicines, plants, perfumes and even a few sun- screens contain compounds that will cause skin reactions when some people go out in the sun. Dermatologists recommend the following precautions to keep in mind during this season: Avoid certain food types when you are out in the sun. Lemon, lime, celery, mustard, dill, fennel, parsnip and wild carrots should not be allowed to contact the skin if sun exposure is expected.

Avoid certain topical and oral medicines, plants, and dyes that can cause an immediate or de- layed reaction. Skin may not re- spond for 48 to 72 hours after sun exposure, making it difficult to re- member what may have triggered the rash, the sunburn or the hives. Avoid over-exposure to the sun while taking any of the following: antifungal agents, tranquilizers, antibiotics like tetracycline, oral hypoglycemic agents, diuretics, or retinoids for acne. If unsure, check with a physician. Don't ever stop taking a medication with getting a physician's approval first. Avoid increased exposure to sunlight while using perfume. If skin is sensitive, avoid sunscreens with PABA. PABA can cause photo-allergic reactions in a small percentage of people. Perfumes can also bring on a sun reaction, so avoid using it in the summer. Everyone is photosensitive to some degree. Since it is almost impossible to avoid the sun com- pletely, it is advisable to be pro- tected from its damaging effects.
