I Get A Migraine Every Time I Use Sunscreen. Is There A Brand Less Likely To Do This?

I have heard there is something in sunscreen that can mimic a hormone, could this be causing the problem?

Answer

Hi Laurie!

I feel that anything is possible to trigger a Migraine attack. If we are triggered off of foods, smells, noise and light, why not off of something we put on our body?

Is it possible you are triggering from too much sun and not the sunscreen itself? Just a thought.

Search the web for more natural sunscreens, maybe with less chemicals. I know of one called Propaline that is sold at Bath and Body Works....or ask your doctor, maybe he/she is aware of a brand to try.

Good luck in your search.
