hello! My gf has recently switched to primal eating- YAY! All has been going very well, but for the past two weeks, after prolonged walks in the sun ( 2 hours plus) she's gotten sunburn blisters on her chest, something she's never had before, even for previous (and very bad) sunburns. Mostly I wondered if anyone knows if this is a sign for a deficiency of some kind we should be looking to fix. I know this is really specific- sorry about that. I'm havng trouble finding potential answers on google, though.
If its just from over exposure, then I suppose the next best answer is sunblock... but the vitamin D! We need lots, precious! I guess I was hoping to avoid excess chemicals as well.

My best guess answer would be zinc deficiency.

From personal experience, I know certain birth controls make your skin more sensitive to sunburn/sun poisoning, and since the skin on the chest is uber sensitive, that's where it is usually the worst. I'm not sure of the science behind this though, and whether or not it's hormone related or a deficiency of some sort.....
