    Phototoxic reaction This is the most common reaction and usually occurs when a drug you’re taking whether by mouth or topically applied is activated by exposure to UV light and causes damage to the skin that can look and feel like a sunburn or a rash. The reaction induced by psoralens, for the most part, is nonphotodynamic. Acute phototoxic reactions are characterized by erythema and edema followed by hyperpigmentation. Long-term ultraviolet phototoxicity results in chronic sun damage and skin cancer formation. There are two types of reactions that can increase our sensitivity to the sun. One is called Photoallergic. The other is called a Phototoxic reaction. Both require the combination of medicines and sunlight to occur. Phototoxic reaction happens when the drug is activated by the sun’s rays and the skin is damaged. This often looks like a sunburn.

    Although some oral photosensitising medications can cause photoallergic reactions, most cause phototoxic reactions. Photoallergic reactions occur less commonly than phototoxic reactions and are mostly caused by photosensitising topical agents.
