Can Nicorandil cause a rash and severe itching of skin that has been exposed to sunlight. I have symptoms that appear very similar to sunburn accompanied by an intense, unbearable itching after a very brief exposure to sunlight.
I did some searching and it appears that it can do that in some people that take it.
I found a study that lists that it occurred in several of the test subjects and was related to the Nicorandil.

I am not sure what other medications may be available for you.
Have you consulted your doctor?
Do you use sunblock?
Thanks for your reply.
Yes, I do use sunblock now but at the time I got the rash I wasn't using any. I know I should always protect myself from the sun but I have never had a problem before. My forearms are quite hairy and have never got sunburnt.
I have seen my doctor and am currently waiting to see a specialist.
