Actinic prurigo. Actinic prurigo is a chronic skin disorder caused by an abnormal reaction to sunlight. It is most common in indigenous populations in Central and South America. Lesions develop hours or days after exposure to sunlight, and are pruritic. Many children with actinic prurigo also develop conjunctivitis and swelling and inflammation of the lower lip.
