Educate Patients to Apply Sunscreen 15-30 Minutes AFTER Tretinoin
We've been getting questions about the best way to educate patients at discharge on how to prevent drug reactions caused by the sun.
We know photosensitivity can be triggered by tetracyclines, sulfonamides, quinolones, and thiazides.
But it can also happen with some antipsychotics, loop diuretics, oral contraceptives, etc. People can even have reactions from handling some FOODS with psoralen...lemons, limes, celery, etc.
