I am taking Sulfa for a recurrent ear infection and will finish the medication the day we arrive on vacation in Mexico - I understand there is sensitivity to the sun - how long does that last?

Hello,

According to the National Institute of Health sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim increase photosensitivity of your skin. They warn that you should avoid exposure to direct sunlight and artificial UV rays as your skin will be more sensitive and burn much easier.

Please ensure that if you have to be in the sun that you wear sunblock and protective clothing if possible.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for [1]Sulfamethoxazole Details

I hope this information helps.
