What Causes Sunburn Susceptibility?
Sunburn susceptibility can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'very minor' to 'needs attention'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

- let The Analyst™ find what's wrong
- learn what you should be doing right now
- have a doctor review your case (optional)
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose sunburn susceptibility, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time
- Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.
Step 1: List all Possible Causes
We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "sunburn susceptibility" as a symptom. For example, pyroluria.
Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist
We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
lighter/paler skin color
no desire to eat breakfast
being prone to 'stitches'
no social support group
being a recovered alcoholic
occasional unexplained nausea
sensitivity to bright light
severe fatigue after slight exertion
white spots on fingernails
low alcohol consumption
... and so on
Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause
A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of sunburn susceptibility.
Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis
is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.
In the Environmental Risk Factors
section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™
will ask the following question about getting sun burn easily:
Compared to other people with similar skin color, how quickly do you sunburn?
→ I sunburn very quickly, much faster than most
→ I am sometimes more easily sunburned than others
→ About average / don't know
→ I don't easily get sunburned compared to others
→ I burn much slower than most people my skin color
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate rapid sunburn tendency, increased sunburn tendency, decreased tendency to sunburn or low tendency to sunburn, The Analyst™
will consider possibilities such as Pyroluria
