Strange Little Bumps
Posted 28 March 2007 - 12:48 PM
My 6 year old has little tiny bumps on her back and arms--like a mini case of the goosebumps. This is the second time in 2 months she has gotten them. Her dermatologist thought it might be a virus, as she has been prone to viral skin reactions in the past. I thought it could have been from strawberries (she was allergic as a baby--I thought she had outgrown it--but they're still there even after 2 weeks of no berries). Could it be a reaction to her Plaquenil? She is on a generic form of it, and her pharmacy recently changed manufacturers of her pill. They don't hurt, are clear in color, and they just make her skin a little rough. Any thoughts?

That sounds a bit like what happens to me when I go out in the sun without protection.....and it started after I started taking Plaquenil. My understanding is that Plaquenil (or the generic) can make one susceptible to sun rashes. I know that I have to use a very strong sun screen now when I am out in the sun or I get that rash.

I don't know if this will help but with adults who have sensitivities, they often do much better with brand name Plaquenil rather than the generic.
I am one of them!

I am really curious about what you wrote...how do you wash sunscreen into clothing?? I have very fair skin and have to be very careful, but absolutely love being in the sun! This sounds like something that maybe helpful for me as well. Thanks!

There is also clothing that is made with spf factor "built in". Do a google search and I'm sure you will turn something up. (of course my memory is of no use, lol!)
