photosensitivity issues

OK as taken from notes 15 September 1989 when Melissa was 1 year old.

Melissa presented at hospital with increasing sensitivity to sunlight. Resulting as a major issue for the family becoming more housebound.  When exposed to sunlight Melissa's eyes stream and there is usually a fit of sneezing which is distressing for everyone.  Special curtains, tinted car windows etc have been trialled none being really effective. Suggestions were made to look at a welders suit-type thing or a pram / pushchair cover as possible solutions. 

Photosensitivity is a major problem - disrupting her home life.
