RetinA sensitivity to sun, how long after quitting will it last?

I quit using retin a micro about 3 weeks ago, yet I still have photosensitivity. Does anyone know for how long skin is photosensitive after quitting retin a micro? I read that the sensitivity can be worse for the first month after quitting. So when does photosensitivity go away? I'm trying to wear sunscreen, but alot of them cause irritation (I must be allergic to certain ingredients in them)

Mainly my skin is a little itchy and warm when in the sun, although I try to avoid the sun at all costs.
