I have just been to the doctor for a skin reaction, looks like overall sunburn of face and neck. I had been using Benadryl oral and cream, which I just saw on photo sensitive list. I've also been taking lisinopril HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide), which according to my doctor makes one photosensitive. Now my doctor says I need Metrocream (metronidazole) which doesn't seem to help at all and of course I paid a fortune for it. I am at my wits' end.
