This question is testing your knowledge on tetracyclines. The patient in the stem is taking tetracyclines and had spent the day at the beach (a big no no) while on these meds. One adverse effect with tetracyclines is that they cause photosensitivity.

Make sure you know all of the adverse effects of tetracyclines and many of them have very bad outcomes.
