Remicade and sun exposure?

I'm sure this has been covered before, but I'm not finding it. My son has been on Remicade for five months now and it's working well for him -woohoo! Do we need to be concerned about sun exposure like when he was on Azathioprine? Same concerns? He's outside several hours a day with sports.

Should be fine. It seems to only suggest drug induced lupus if rashes and skin issues develop in the sun while on Remicade.

Should be totally fine to enjoy the outdoors with sun screen like everyone else.
