It is frequently mistaken for hereditary conditions such as atopic dermatitis or chemical burns, but it is caused by contact with the photosensitizing compounds found naturally in some plants and vegetables like parsnips, citrus fruits, and more. Symptoms can be burning, itching, stinging, and large blisters that slowly accumulate over time.
