Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Sun Sensitivity
Answer: Rashes are occasionally seen, but I'm not aware of any specific sun sensitivity. I would get a blood check for lupus(ANA) and you might consider a skin biopsy of unexposed skin(your rump is usually the best spot) to ensure that there are not any immune complex depositions. If these are negative, then the Wellbutrin is still the suspect. Other drugs can do this also, are you taking birth control pills or any other medication?
Answer: Wouldn't think so but there are some sytemic diseases that cause sun sensitivity as well as common medications like birth control pills. Ensure your doctor has checked your sedimentation rate and checked you for lupus. A skin biopsy would be helpful also(unaffected areas of your skin).
