Do you know an ingredient in sunscreen that someone can be allergic to?

I used Coppertone Sport and I seemed to get an allergic reaction but it can also be the combination of sun. Not sure.

  • Any of the chemicals in sunscreen a person can be allergic too. I would compare the label of the sunscreen you have to a different sunscreen.

    My DSS is allergic to any kind of spray on sunscreen.
