Hy , when I go out on a normal day ( UV rating 5) with a hat on and suncream lotion on my face ,outside for 30 minutes - I still get sunburned in my face- Does this mean I suffer from Photosensitivity
??

I have had 1-bcc removed already.
Should I ask my GP for Melanin injections or will he refuse ?
Can Melanin deficiency be tested for ???

You can ask your gp and better consult with dermatologist.

I have photosensitive skin. From your description I wouldn’t suggest that you have one
