-Abnormal sensitivity to sunlight and bright lights is known as photosensitivity and sometimes referred to as "sun flare" or photophobia. In the context of the MP, the ultimate cause of photosensitivity is the Th1 inflammatory disease process –  [[home:​mp:​immunopathology#​necessity_of_immunopathology|not the treatment itself]]. Exposure to natural or bright artificial light in a photosensitive person can lead to flares of internal disease activity, including exacerbation of any inflammatory disease symptoms. ​+Abnormal sensitivity to sunlight and bright lights is known as photosensitivity and sometimes referred to as "sun flare" or photophobia.

Exposure to natural or bright artificial light in a photosensitive person can lead to flares of internal disease activity, including exacerbation of any inflammatory disease symptoms. Neurological phenomena also occur since the amygdala has nerves connecting it to a number of important brain centers, including the neocortex and visual cortex
  
 Photosensitivity can occur either when the skin is exposed to bright natural light or the eyes are exposed to either natural or artificial light. Photosensitivity symptoms can occur immediately after exposure or begin 1 to 3 days later, sometimes persisting 5 days or more.  Photosensitivity can occur either when the skin is exposed to bright natural light or the eyes are exposed to either natural or artificial light.
