    I've read on medical sites that Hydroxychloroquine can react with the sun causing allergic reactions and I wonder if this is the cause of the rash on this occasion or whether it's just my normal photosensitivity. I've read some posts on the forum here about people reacting to Hydroxychloroquine but it seems to be very severe as you say twitchytoes. Sun-sensitive or photosensitive drugs are drugs that cause a moderate to severe skin reaction that is similar to a bad sunburn when exposed to the sun UV rays, usually the forehead, nose, hands, arms, and lips. Many common medications cause this reaction in some people. Usually, the allergic reaction appears within 24 hours of sun exposure and resolves when the blisters from the rash peel. Side Effects Nausea, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dizziness, or headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember.

    I am interested to see if anyone here has gotten a rash from Plaquenil after being on it for several months. I have been getting these horrible rashes and they are not related to sun exposure. I am starting to wonder if they are related to Plaquenil. My doctor now wants me to start on Chloroquine instead of plaquenil. Methotrexate and sun sensitivity. Esp someone on similar regime to me, as I'm 17.5mg MTX and hydroxychloroquine. And yes, I am sun sensitive now too - I come out in a bumpy rash straight away. I use SunSense, an Aussie sun cream that's factor 50 but unperfumed that I buy on internet. Protection from sun when taking Methotrexate I have. A patient developed toxic epidermal necrolysis TEN, which was triggered by sun exposure while the patient was on long-term hydroxychloroquine. Phototoxic and photoallergic reactions are known to occur with hydroxychloroquine, but, to our knowledge, this is the first reported case of photo-induced TEN associated with the drug.
