    If you have a skin condition or any other condition that is affected by exposure to sunlight, talk with your doctor about the effects of using sunscreens.

    Talk with your doctor about any topical medications you use and any allergies you have, including allergies to sunscreen ingredients, acetazolamide, sulfonamides, diabetes drugs, diuretics, and any other medications.

    Also, talk with your doctor if you have any concerns about side effects or drug interactions from using sunscreens.
