Re: Tamoxifen and sun

Thank you. No radiotherapy but I think I'll be hitting up te SPF 50 too. This sunburn is wicked. I used a 15 but obviously need higher. Take care!

Re: Tamoxifen and sun

Hi

Did you have radiotherapy ? If so your skin will be thinner than before and the sun gets to you much quicker, if not ive not heard of Tam affecting the skin particulary, Ive been on it for 2 years but because I also had rads I am vigilant with the factor 50 and so far touch wood been ok, worth a chat with the Dr or BCN I would say

 

All the best x

Tamoxifen and sun

Does anyone know if Tamoxifen and sun have warnings? I was out in the sun for a bit today and am extremely sunburnt. In the past, I never burned as I have a dark complexion anyway but today..... Yikes...... I am a painful lobster.
