@Iluviaporos - I never found that to be much of an issue. If you are living in the desert, you shouldn't be going out into the sun all that much anyway. Most activity is arranged to be completed in the morning, or the evening in order to avoid the sun.
And having sensitive skin just makes you even more eager to avoid it and better at remembering to put on hats and sunblock and every other precaution, which can only be a good thing.
Besides, frankly, I would take any treatment for malaria over the disease itself. It's horrible and really not something I want to go through again.
