Do lupus sufferers have to bask in the sun and how long to sunbathe?

1 Answer:

Hello Ferdinand, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Lupus is an autoimmune disease characterized by symptoms in the form of skin rashes, joint pain, and extreme fatigue. Lupus sufferers are very sensitive to sunlight so it is important for lupus sufferers to protect the skin from the sun. The risk of this is that lupus sufferers will experience vitamin D deficiency, therefore doctors will provide vitamin D supplements to lupus patients.


Things that can be done now are:

Wear sunscreen to prevent sunburn
Wearing clothes that cover the body from the sun
Use a hat when traveling in the sun

You can also discuss this further with the doctor who has treated you for this.


So, hopefully useful.
