What are symptoms of photosensitivity?

ANSWER

You may get a pink or red skin rash with blotchy blisters, scaly patches, or raised spots on areas the light touched. The rash may itch and burn and last for several days. For some people, the reaction to sunlight gradually becomes less each time you're exposed.
