How to treat it…

Cold compresses and over-the-counter hydrocortisone cream should relieve the itching and inflammation. As with any inflammatory skin condition, if you scratch and break the blisters, it can potentially cause infections and scarring.

How long it can last…

A phytophotodermatitis rash can remain  for months, even years. However, if it lasts longer than a couple of months, talk to your doctor.

Are limes the only foods that can cause this?

Unfortunately, phytophotodermatitis can result from skin’s contact to many different substances, including some fragrances, fruits, vegetables and grasses exposed to sunlight.

How to prevent it…

People in the service industry, such as bartenders, waiters and cooks, tend to be the most susceptible. Doctors advise wearing gloves whenever possible, wearing mineral sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and washing suspected areas of exposure with soap and water, followed by a generous application of sunscreen.
