Skin Sensitivity: Not sick (just because of the sun) but your skin may be very sensitive to burning. Being on antibiotics any time in the year can be hard on your GI system.

Yes: Humans are sun creatures. We need sunlight to produce vitamin d. Of course you don't want to burn, especially if you are fair skinned. But i think the fear of the sun has gone too extreme. Avoid extreme heat however.

No: Generally not, unless the bleeding is due to localized infection at the cervix (ie chlamydia). Bleeding in the first trimester is typically not an infectious process, and will not be affected by antibiotics.

Your question is vague because if you have an infection like Dr Fogelson mentions, then you need the antibiotic.

It depends: Many medications (both oral and topical) can cause a photosensitive dermatitis (rash due to sun exposure). Topical sunscreens can also cause this problem. In addition, photosensitivity can be seen with certain genetic conditions (such as porphyria) and autoimmune conditions (such as lupus). Rarely, individuals can develop hives with sun exposure. Discuss with your healthcare provider.
