20 Feb 2011 I am experiencing a severe skin reaction. All of face and upper chest area ( exposed to daylight ) is a very pinky/red . The affected skin area is tingly and feels as though it has been burnt. I have been to my GP who prescribed Hayleve which I took for 3days and the redness subsided . On stopping the 4mg 4x day the condition is recurring. I have experienced this skin condition previously whe I was prescribed other medicine. Is there a medication to reduce blood pressure which does not have " The light sensitivity factor " ?
