Hi, the only effective PMLE treatment on me is a body lotion with alpha-glucosylrutin and vitamin E. I have PMLE for 22 years and tried a lot of treatments. So far it's the only real effective preventive solution and it is totally natural.
I formulate this lotion myself with a cosmetic chemist. I tested it in Cape Cod last july. I spent 7 days on the beaches, typically 5 to 6 hours of direct sun exposure everyday. I didn't do anything else prior to vacation and didn't use vitamin or topical corticosteroid. I wanted to be sure the effects were only from the lotion.
From all the preventive treatments I've tried so far, it is the only solution that has reduced 90% of my symptoms. The only minor rash that appeared was under my arms and on the back of my thighs where lotion may have been removed by my towel. Hope you can give it a try too! Good luck to you all to find a solution for your PMLE.View Thread
