    i went out last night to a show in west wales called Cnapan. There we two different tents, one playing welsh rock and bands and then one with Dj's and foam/UV paint. Being 18 and loving to party i spent most of the night in the foam/UV paint tent. I woke up today in my mates bed and i looked in the mirror and saw that i was bright red under my eyes and across my nose. I later discovered after arriving home and having a shower this harsh red was also on my arms. A few friends reckon i just couldn't get the paint off but me and my parents think i'm allergic to the paint. Its painful to touch, just like sun burn. It has the same texture and pains as sunburn but is a bit more blotchy. I can't find any helpful websites related to this. If anyone has any tips or could link me a website where i could read about UV paint allergic symptoms that would be great and i would be very grateful, as i don't want to go to the doctors unless absolutely necessary.

    Thank you.

    Probably you should go to the doctor especially if it's around your eyes. But you should take anti-histamines (piriton) that will get rid of the itchiness and some of the swelling
