I have had my mirena inserted now for just over 5 years and after about a year or so I developed a photosensitivity. I have never had a problem in the sun and am attributing it from my mirena. Has anyone else had this problem? I am having it removed on Friday and I am hoping I will be able to enjoy the beach again.
HELP have developed Photosensitivity!! Have been taking synthroid since 2004 for Graves disease and the amount has been increased to 150mg over the years. Ten Minutes out in the sun and I trun completely red and itchy where the sun has been exposed. We are an outdoors/beachy family. Any suggestions?

I'm a first time CLL patient. I started treatment 12/2/14 with RB (Rituximab + Bendamustine)for 3 treatments and then develop a 0.3 ANC (absolute neutrophil count). My 4th treatment was Bendamustine (alone) no Rituximab. My 5th treatment was Fludarabine and Rituximab that ended 12 June 2015. I have stopped further treatment due to blistering caused by the sun a photosensitivity problem that takes only 2 seconds of sunlight on bare skin to produce. I am going to a dermatologist for the photosensitivity problems but nothing seems to work. I just finished course of treatment with Prednisone (10 mg/tablet).
