What causes a sunburn and suntan?
Skin cancer: How the sun can hurt your skin
What Dermatologists Tell Their Patients
Even mild sunburn can cause psoriasis to flare. To protect your skin, use a fragrance-free sunscreen. Fragrance can irritate the skin and cause psoriasis to flare.
Dermatologists recommend that everyone, including their patients who have psoriasis, use a sunscreen that offers:
- SPF 30 or higher
- Broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) protection
- Water resistance
