Polymorphous light eruption, chronic actinic dermatitis, solar urticaria
and porphyria cutaneatarda.
Another cause could be solar urticaria
, an allergy which produces hives on skin exposed to sunlight.
However, the committee did find substantial evidence linking "single-envelope" CFLs--those with the bare spiral tube showing--to aggravation of chronic actinic dermatitis, solar urticaria
, lupus erythematosus, and photosensitive eye conditions.
UVB phototherapy and photochemotherapy (PUVA) in the treatment of polymorphic light eruption and solar urticaria
This synthetic analogue of melanocyte-stimulating hormone is under development as a treatment for a diverse collection of skin diseases, including polymorphous light eruption, solar urticaria
, and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as AKs.
The afamelanotide implant (Scenesse) is also in clinical trials for more common diseases, including vitiligo, solar urticaria
, and polymorphous light eruption, as well as for prevention of actinic keratoses and squamous cell carcinomas in organ transplant recipients.
