  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • After even a short exposure to the direct rays of the sun (5 minutes or less) my feet will begin to burn and itch severely. Other areas of my skin will tingle or have a mild burning sensation but my feet quickly become unbearable. After moving into the shade or coming indoors the feelings will fade after 5 to 10 minutes with no signs of sunburn.

    I am 51 and have Type II diabetes that is controlled by diet, no medications taken. As above I also suffer from arrhythmia, osteoarthritis and heart disease for which the listed medications are taken daily.
