Top 10 Strangest Side Effects Antibiotics Can Give You
Some antibiotics can cause a less-known side effect that can keep us at home for days. Medically known as photosensitivity, this side effect can make your eyes extremely sensitive to light and your skin more likely to get sunburns.
Photosensitivity usually goes away after ending the antibiotic treatment, but it’s definitely unpleasant.
What you can do: Apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going out to avoid any potential sunburn and wear sunglasses if your eyes are sensitive. Our free summer skincare routine here may help you pick the best product for your needs.
Call your doctor: If you start experiencing sudden blurry vision even without light exposure, or if it’s accompanied by dizziness and fever, let your doctor know ASAP.
