Subject: Mtx & the sun!

Hi there! Got a question. . . Put on facebook that I was quite liking having a tan and 3 peeps who know i'm on mtx who have experience of it all came back and said I should be careful with mtx and the sun because the mtx makes you very sensative to the sun so need high factor sun cream. Is this right? If so, I can't believe no one in the medical field has ever told me this. I'm the girl who never uses cream coz I just brown so easily. Could this be why i'm brown in April lol? Anyway hope you're all enjoying the sun? XXX

Ive heard that about it too. It is something docs should mention but im not worried about it as im the poor sod who goes pink then back to white lol, so i gave up on the sun ages ago lol.

Yes Abbie ive heard that too, its becos the MTX was once upon a time used as a chemo therapy, mite still be, unsure, that is y u need to be covered by cream, u can still enjoy the sun tho...... LOLOL Kristine that did make me chuckle when u said u go Pink then back to white......I get red, then eventually it goes brown, mind u, I use to do the sunbeds, love having a tan, dont do them anymore tho, think i go brown in hotter country, but over here, i dont really try to get a tan, not worth it....

Hi guys! I went and asked my lovely pharmacist today and he confirmed it and Bless him sold me some sun cream and threw another in free. What's that's say when ur friends with the pharmacist lol. I thought it bad enough when the dr's receptionists recognise my voice over the phone lol XXX PS Yes Kirstine, it does feel good having a colour but I guess i'll just have to stick to my trusty bronzer now lol

Unfortunately im a red head and burn instantly, peel and go white lol Last year on one of the ridiculously hot days I got really bad sunburn whilst wearing factor 50! and i was reapplying ever couple of hrs! My freckles multiply so i tend to seem tanned but my poor legs bless them havent seen the sun for a looooong time (apart from tunisia but its different on hols lol)

People that go brown straight away make me sick! Damn jealousy!
