The effect on human skin of over-exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) has been well described. The erythema produced is commonly referred to as 'sunburn'. Recently UVR induced inflammation has been utilised as a human model of sub-acute pain. Our aim was to characterise the sensory phenotype of UVB inflammation in human volunteers. We delivered UVB to small areas of volar forearm skin in healthy volunteers and found that the degree of inflammation and concomitant increase in… CONTINUE READING
