Summer is here and it’s imperative that we take precautions to reduce the effects of sun exposure.
About two-thirds of the people with lupus are UV light-sensitive. Many experience an increase in lupus symptoms after being exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays, either from the sun or from artificial light.
Sunlight may cause also a lupus flare, resulting in fever, joint pain, or even organ inflammation. Each person with lupus may have a different level of photosensitivity – just like in the general population.
Try the helpful tips above to make this summer a successful one :)
For a future with #nolupus we must first get to #knowlupus!
